    For the 'Outline the key strengths of Utilitarianism' I wrote about the key strengths within Act Utilitarianism and, Rule Utilitarianism. In Act Utilitarianism, I talked about it being consequentialist and why. I then wrote about it being a quantitative pleasure and the hedonic calculus. For example, for the Hedonic calculus, I said it was an empirical process for making moral decisions, and then went on to explain the hedonic calculus. All I said is that it was a strength, I didn't really say why it was a strength. Is what I have put wrong? Should I have said why it is a strength? Will I lose a lot of marks? I then obviously went on to talk about Rule Utilitarianism and did the same thing...
