In the following sentence, using "provide" instead of "prsent" is said wrong.
I don't understand why it is and what difference are between them.
Is there anybody who can tell me?

Thank you in advance!

* Students must present their ID card to be admitted free to the museum.

One more question:

Parents are invited to the school on May 2 to discuss their child's ____.

Does this sentence above make sense if I put the word "entrance" in the blank?

Well, provide means, supply (i.e., Students must provide proof that they are a student), whereas present means, show (i.e., Students must show their ID). :D

How about entrance requirements for their child or registration for the child?

All the best, :D
