Advertising encourages a desire for products which people do not actually need. Discuss. (2004)
For this question, the term “actually” changes it subtly. Arguably, it is unlikely to make any difference to whether or not your essay meets requirements. However, the term implies that there is a perceived need – just that it isn’t an actual or real need. Pointing this out in your introduction might be helpful in highlighting that you’re aware of this, and discussing the idea of a perceived versus an actual need in your essay would make for a better essay.
