History 8-marker

I have one question that I can't seem to find the answer to anywhere on the internet :frown:
For a "how useful" 8 mark question, if one of the sources was a government document, how could the document be less useful or limited? I can't seem to find a point to write about how the nature of the document source is less useful

help me pleaseeee

Use the acronym JACK
Two paragraphs one about source A and one about Source B

JUDGEMENT State how useful the source is for the given enquiry
ANALYSIS Make an inference about the source by either picking out a direct quotation or describing the image Analyse the provenance (why might it be made? Is it propaganda? Is the date important)
CONTEXTUAL KNOWLEGDE Compare the content of the source against your own knowledge how accurate is it? Use specific detail

Also when finding the strengths or weaknesses of the source consider who wrote it, when it was written, why was it written. If it was a photograph or painting you consider the same things but different circumstances

Hope this helps! Ask if you have any questions xx
