you basically need to argue for and against something - pointing out the flaws in arguments and then arriving at a conclusion. have you got an example of a question?

Like a question on devolution let’s say, “does devolution threaten the unity of the UK” something like that. I can just never evaluate.

yeah so you evaluate by giving arguments for and against

conservatives would lean towards yes: they argued against devolution in 1997 because of the constitutional impacts of it (west lothian question) and a possible rise in nationalism

others would argue that it gives regional autonomy and local law-making powers

you can bring in recent events - the SNP in scotland, devolved countries following different paths from westminster in dealing with covid; the impact of brexit on devolution.

even regional mayors can threaten unity, because of disagreement over covid handling (eg andy burnham recently)

your introductory argument should already set the path of the essay, ie do you agree to some extent and then you have ur main body which discusses the arguments for and against and evaluates them but your argument should be the prevailing one, and in the conclusion you reiterate it
