Usually buying round trip is cheaper than 1 way. You can buy a round trip ticket and then just cancel the return trip ticket. Or you can buy 1 way and pay more. Its up to you guys.

They were asking the requirements....

And why would round trip be cheaper than one way? That doesn't make any sense.

Google is your friend.

But anyway...

Round trip used to be cheaper than one way, because tourists (price-sensitive) would typically buy roundtrips, and business travellers (not price-sensitive) used to buy oneway tickets.

This is much less true than it used to be.

Be careful: if you buy a return ticket and only use half of it, the airline can come after you for the fare difference (it's usually in the terms you agree to when you buy the ticket).
