I know that append takes exactly one argument. So what is the difference between an argument and parameter?

In short, a parameter is what a method accepts (or is expecting), and an argument is what is passed into the method when it is called.
You call it a parameter when inside the function and an argument when outside the function.

Also, parameter is a variable and argument is the value you assign to the variable.
