    I have no idea on how to answer "to what extent" questions.
    What is the question asking me? Do I reply "To a very large extent" or something?
    Example:
    To what extent should John consider the complaints from his stakeholders?

    My friend told me that the question is basically asking why should John consider the complaints from his stakeholders, which wouldn't be too hard to answer at all, but I seek confirmation.
    Thanks

    It is basically asking you to construct a simple argument for the for and against reasons for considering the complaints. If a huge corporation 'considered' ALL complaints to a large extent then it would probably be damaging to the company and make them less efficient. It is points like this you should make when answering such questions

    For the question you gave.

    You will need to say the FOR reasons for considering the complaints, as well as the AGAINST factors.
    The main point of to 'what extent' comes in where you have to describe, in a way, a 'cut off point'.
    For example, you say.. 'Well John should always consider complains, however not when the cost of doing so is greater than the benefit it gives' Stuff like that.
