Here's a recent exam question (thanks to Mohammed Nasser for sharing it).
Many people prefer to watch foreign films than locally produced films.
Why could this be?
Should governments give more financial support to local film industries?
I call this type of question a "two-part question". The best thing about two-part questions is that it's so easy to plan your 4-paragraph essay structure:
- Introduction: topic + general answer to both questions
- Answer the first question
- Answer the second question
- Conclusion: paraphrase the answer you gave in the introduction
