    As a teacher, can you please set a good example to students by using correct capitalisation.

    Please see the corrections I have made to your post. Remember to start every new sentence with a capital letter, and put individual words and phrases you are querying inside quotation marks so it's easy to differentiate between them and the other words in your post.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Demonstrating is showing what something can do (or just does). Indicating is showing where something is (hence 'index finger') or just that it is. They can be synonymous, but often aren't.

    But two short sentences like that can't possibly explain fully - or even satisfactorily. As has already been suggested, use a thesaurus and several dictionaries monolingual, preferably.
