Discussion of the distribution and abundance of living organisms and how these properties are affected by interactions between the organisms and their environment

Explain why adaptations of particular organisms to interspecific competition may not necessarily represent instances of character displacement. What would a researcher have to demonstrate about two competing species to make a convincing case for character displacement?
OK, I have the same exact question here on my homework for an essay question and I don't know the answer. Since character displacement comes from adaptations to competition, I don't see how if it's an adaptation to competition it's not character displacement. If it's an adaptation to competition, it will affect only the species living in the same environment as it's competition. I have the last part of the question though, a researcher would have to show graphs of the two species together and each species in the same environment with the exception of the other species being there.
