Question on Reading Response

I saw that the instructions said “Continue with annotations that discuss, in specific detail, where you see tensions between the supplemental text and the primary course reading, where the supplemental text may help to explain the primary course reading, where the supplemental text and the primary course reading seem to be exploring and applying similar concepts”

My question pertaining to the reading response project information is, do we have to solely focus on supporting or contradicting the connection between the supplemental text and the primary course reading?
