    I do not know how many I should include in any essays and if it will impact my grade a lot or not? Thanks

    As many as you can remember! Honestly it depends on the topic, some have more than others. I would say make sure you have a variety that cover different aspects and perspectives. On certain topics there are some that you really do have to include, like Parsons and Durkheim for functionalism. Don't push it, I'd say 5 - 8 per topic, then if you don't remember them all in the exam it doesn't matter because you'll have some for back up. Hope this helps!
