In general, a range of properties can describe each style and any beer falling within this range is stylistically accurate. When studying the style, try to get an appreciation for the full range of beers that may fall within the guidelines for that style. Pay special attention to the wording of the guidelines. Modifiers are used to add information about different characteristics of the style. Look at the phrases which signify the magnitude of a characteristic, such as "little or no", "light to somewhat medium", "low to moderate", etc. These may seem ambiguous but they are written to give you a range to go by instead of an absolute value.
