To What ExtentShailen, Sarah, JiminDefining “extent”According to the IB curriculum guide, "to what extent" means to “Consider the merits or otherwise ofan argument or concept.” This language is pretty vague. So, instead, I recommend you:I.present a counter-argument to the concept introduced in the questionII.explain why the theory or concept being discussed is stronger or weaker than the counter-argument.III.The focus of the response is on evaluating the strengths and limitations of an argumentcompared to the counter arguments.
