A primary information can be interviews, speeches as these are information which are not edited and for speeches we directly hear it but A secondary information can be textbooks and newspapers as these are information which are edited and these can be based on the primary information.

A. Primary sources are created by persons directly involved in an activity or event. Secondary information is something that people adapt from the Primary information.It may be analysed to be more detailed, or it will be exaggerated.It can be useful if it is analysed well as we could have more information then. Example:Newspaper articles
B. Popular information is use to entertain the readers, but scholarly information is more about researched information..Popular information is good in a way that they provide something exaggerated.Scholarly information is good as it is not exaggerated and the information given is after people researched
C. Printed, Digital,Audio/Video, Multimedia, Microform, Human

A)primary source are original materials which have not been filtered through interpretation, condensation, or, often, even evaluation by a second party; for example journal articles, monographs, reports, patents, theses, diaries, letters, photographs, poems. A secondary source is information about primary, or original, information, which usually has been modified, selected, or rearranged for a specific purpose or audience. Examples include biographies, histories, monographs, review articles, textbooks, and any index or bibliography used to locate primary sources.
B)In scholarly information contains primary account of original findings written by the researcher(s); very specific information, with the goal of scholarly communication. While popular information discuss about secondary discussion of someone else's research; may include personal narrative or opinion; general information, purpose is to entertain or inform.
