    This is more homework that you are asking us to do without making your own effort first.

    'Draw timelines to explain the difference' is clearly an instruction from your textbook.

    Cool Re: confusing sentences

    I was leaving when he arrived . ( means I had already decided to leave and in the process of leaving when he got in)
    I left when he arrived. ( meas I was not in the process of leaving and my leaving happened after he had arrived)

    I think you can figure out the difference in the two examples , each of which can be an answer to your questions.
