What do the words ambiguity and bias mean?

Write two pairs of sentences that are biased…

e.g.

Sheffield Wednesday are the greatest team in the universe and a giant ready to pounce.

Sheffield Wednesday are a bunch of overpaid nincompoops and as effective with a football as a snail in a Stella Artois.

Finally 

If any of the people could email me about what the teddy bear was raising money for I can put it into the RE Handbook that the teachers are being tested on next week.

Take care!

Mr Conway
