Any tips/ what I would need to include?
I don't remember being taught this section and i'm finding it a little confusing.

Thanks

So the social influences are obedience, conformity as minority influence.

And example answer:
Obedience is one way to bring about social change. Gradual commitment, making someone do something small, then asking them to do something bigger, will result in them being more likely to obey. This is because, after having obeyed, it’s difficult to disobey. For example, the government setting the law that people under 21 can only buy 1 cigarette a day. Then, after a couple of months, making the age for smoking to be 21. This is gradual commitment as you make them do something small, then when you ask them to do something bigger they’re more likely to obey, as they obeyed previously.
