As you haven't mentioned what the question is, or the module, or even the course, it's clear that you're not looking for any help with this specific question. Your query is more of a general, "How do I answer a question where, despite having read a few articles and revised lectures, I still haven't got a clue how to answer it." Agreed?
It's possible that the question is worded in a really confusing, or perhaps overly broad, way. Is that the case?
Do you understand the topic generally, even if you don't know how to tackle this particular question?
Are others on your course struggling in the same way? If not, could you ask one of them to point you in the right direction?
What has the 30 hours you've spent so far produced? Do you have an essay, but just not one that you're happy with? Or have you deleted it and re-written it ad infinitum such that there is no actual result of your labours?
Would it be fair to say that the fact that you don't particularly enjoy this module is hampering your ability to answer the question?
