I agree with #4. I disagree with the others.
I'm not sure if I understand this to my fullest
I agree with your second answers now.
Debate requires not only researching and speaking on YOUR side of the subject, but also refuting your opponent's side. Research papers normally don't require that -- unless it's an argumentative paper.
Argumentative papers and debate performances resemble each other greatly.
Research papers don't usually require dealing with opposing views.
