Is this a good enough research question for my TOK presentation?

I am doing a TOK presentation on The Chinese Social Credit System and linking it to the dystopian world presented in the novel 1984 by George Orwell. The research question that I came up with is: 'To what extent do humans possess free will?' I would really appreciate it if you could tell me if any improvements should be made to this, or if it is good enough, as my TOK teacher was very ambiguous about it.

Hey, I like the real life situations but I know if I told that to my teacher he would tell me it was way too common and not special at all. Your teacher and the moderators want to see something new that (maybe) hasn't been considered so they know this came purely from your mind and you didn't need to draw on a million sources that have written about free will before.

Try to incorporate a WOK into the question like "To what extent does reasoning/emotion/instinct/authority give the illusion of free will?"

This is just my recommendations, it's a great topic to discuss imo but make sure it's something special that will be interesting to hear and not be repeating research that has been made for centuries.
