Generally the easiest way to do so, is by simply making a point and then following it by a case study to back it up or by presenting a case study and using it make a point. It could depend on what subject you're doing this for. For example for geography, I would state a fact or statistic from the case study and then branch off of that to explain whatever needs to be explained. E.g "Using a case study of a city in an LIC evaluate the effects of economic development on the population's quality of life" and an answer for this could be something like "Lagos is a city in an LIC and has experienced urban growth, which means that the city is continually expanding to accommodate the 21+ million people living there. As a result, a significant number of construction jobs is available, and this availability of employment provides people with income which... " and so on.

I hope this makes some sense. I suppose it would be easier to help out if I knew what it is that you're writing, so if you do still need help I could try and do so.

Good luck with the essay ✨
