Thanks for your comment. Here’s the difference between a “discussion” essay and an “argument” essay. In a discussion essay, you are presenting both views on an issue given in the task and providing support for both sides. You DO NOT include your personal opinion. In an argument essay, you are giving your personal opinion (viewpoint you agree with) and your supporting reasons. For the “To what extent do you agree or disagree” question, you are presenting your opinion (agree or disagree) and your supporting reasons.
