im doing num. 5 as well. its hard but u just need to start it. as long as u can justify ur answer, its fine. I started by looking at the title and defining each part. Eg. What is a definite answer, is there such thing? Is there such thing as morality or is it different to each and every person. Is being selfish good or bad? Shouldn’t we all lookout for ourselves. Make a comparison between definite answers in science and mathematics, and indefinite answers in philosophy/TOK.
Hope this helps, good luck

also look at what you think it means by 'definitive' -- do you interpret it to mean truth, knowledge, accepted facts, etc.
Link questions like 'Why should I be moral?' etc" to ethics if you think that fits be sure to talk about ways of knowing.
You may also want to look at Immanuel Kant and his work and Categorical Imperative
If you find anything else let me know.
