1) 3 ways in which Britain is a pluralist democracy
Find some definitions of pluralism (Wikipedia's a good direction-pointer) and determine in what ways the UK fits the bill. For example: many political parties, free speech, right to appeal, that sort of thing.

2) 3 aspects of the participation crisis in the UK
Find definitions of political participation and find scholars who have indicated that the UK has a crisis of it, and explore their arguments. Find scholars who contest their claims, and for bonus points, make your own assessment.

3) 3 ways in which participation in the UK is still healthy
As above, sorta

4) 3 ways in which the UK has reduced the democratic deficit
A bit broad - my first thought was 'reduced it since when?'. First, define the democratic deficit by citing scholars' arguments. You might try from 1997, or since 2010...look at typical criticisms of British political participation and show what's been done to address them (e.g. overcentralisation addressed with devolution)

5) 3 ways in which the UK has failed to reduce the democratic deficit
As above. You could point out that devolution - England has been overlooked, for example.

Hope that helps...
