When analysing an essay question, it can be very helpful to write down a series of questions based on the original essay question. This step will help you clarify your understanding of the essay question and will provide a set of questions that are a useful starting point for your research.
Here's an example:
"The development of Bioethics is as important to medicine
as the development and use of antibiotics"
Some questions you could ask of this question are:
When did Bioethics develop?
When were antibiotics developed?
What impact has bioethics had on medicine?
What impact has antibiotics had on medicine?
Are they equally important, or is one more important than the other?
Is bioethics as important as the advent of antibiotics?
