    Not a lot! As long as you mention it once or twice and develop on what it says it should be fine.

    For example if the item states

    "Functionalists do not see marriage as a social institution coming under threat due to the high re-marriage rate"

    You could start a paragraph with; 'As Item 2B states, "Functionalists do not see marriage as a social institution coming under threat due to the high re-marriage rate....' and then build on this with things like ideology of romantic love, why there's a high re-marriage rate and so on.

    If the item says later on

    "However some perspectives see the declining marriage rate as a threat. For example the New Right state that it is undermining the traditional nuclear family and causing a wide range of problems."

    You could start a counter to your points above by stating; 'However, it is essential to consider how reliable and corroborative the Functioanlist view point is when assessing what declining marriage rates mean. For example, Item 2B says that "the New Right state that it is undermining the traditional nuclear family and causing a wide range of problems." This shows that...' and then go on about Murray, crime rates, single parents etc.
