abnormality

1.1. Discuss the concept of normality and abnormality, with two examples.
I see there was a post regarding this previously but there was no response. I am confused on what the 2 examples need to be.

I hope someone can make this a little clearer for me :)

Hi,
You need to look at psychological definitions of Abnormality (such as Statistical Infrequency etc...) and then look at what it means to be normal (what is normal?) Is normality when we conform to the norms of society and its expected behaviour? Give an example.
