i was wondering, as far as the structure of a report goes, is this alright:
Introduction paragraph indroducing the fact that there are similarities and difference between a given subject.
Paragraph stating one difference.
Paragraph stating two similarities.
Paragraph stating one more difference
As a general outline, it is not the recommended form, which would ask you to keep your similarities and differences in linear order rather than scattered about:
Intro - general info and thesis statment about the existence of similarities and differences.
P1 - all similarities (note that this comes first because they were first mentioned in the Introduction.
P2 - all differences
