    I'm talking about the 25 mark data response question! It is so hard. How do you even tackle it? What structure in particular!

    I'm talking about the 25 mark data response question! It is so hard. How do you even tackle it? What structure in particular!
    YOU ALWAYS start with a definition related to the question. And i mean always. You just put a relevant defintion straight in.
    So your first line will always be something like 'Government failiure is xxx'. In the same paragraph, you write a few sentences in a style that adresses the quest and will lead on to your arguments.

    Your next 2/3 paragraphs should be arguments about the question. So you will need to include plenty of economic theory with diagrams. ALWAYS relate it to the question. Try avoid putting a mechanical answer about buffer stocks or whatever your writing about. Also use the source to lead on to your response, it makes your answer a lot more fluid.
    I personally write 2 paragraphs as i like to make my paragraphs more detailed.

    Last paragraph is the conclusion. You basically want to evaluate the entire situation and possible suggest why your arguments may not be reasonable. Also you can use this paragraph to add other policies/ideas which you didnt think off when writing your main paragraphs.

    In short you should have:
    Introductory paragraph
    2 or 3 paragraphs with arguments and economic content
    Conclusion / Evaluation
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
