Ip identification field in the ip header can be used to uniquely identify the packet. This number is not globally unique however you can use this to track a packet in different packet captures file.

For example if you want to verify if one packet left from one pc and reached another. Take pcap on both pc and filter with the of the specific packet that you are looking for on both pcaps

It sounds like they are looking for analysis of the payload data which should contain a unique id. Perhaps you should clarify the question with your professor.
