Can you talk about the water cycle in a question that focuses on the water cycle?

We are planning a question that is to do with the carbon cycle feedback systems and the understanding of climate change, and I was wondering if I could do a paragraph based on how water cycle understand is also necessary due to the interlinking between the two cycles. Is this a good thing to do?

This is for A-Level AQA by the way.

NOTE - Title is meant to be "Can you talk about the water cycle in a question that focuses on the carbon cycle?"

This is for a 20 marker by the way

I wouldn’t say so as the marks on the mark scheme will be for mentioning content about the carbon cycle, but some positive feedback mechanisms of the carbon cycle are linked to the water cycle if you talk about something like the acceleration of the melting of glaciers and permafrost (shifting of water from the cryosphere to the hydrosphere) as, carbon content as well as water content is being released from long term sequestration stores and being fluxed into rapid exchanges between the atmosphere and the biosphere.

But stick to content on the carbon cycle and explain how this is linked to the carbon cycle if relevant. And mention the type of feedback system present too.

Why wouldn't you get marks for it though considering it is a 20 marker so you normally have to give both sides of the argument (in this case it would be discussing how the carbon cycle can't be viewed on its own). I would be linking everything I say about the water cycle back to the carbon cycle and talking about how the impacts of this can make the feedbacks better/worse.
