You’ve read the text, we’ve read the text. Repeating the ideas in the text and passing them off as “yours” is a waste of your time, and ours too.
Instead of rehashing points made by the author, develop these points by
- explaining the same argument from a different aspect or level (e.g. if the author’s point is political, state that the same argument holds true in the economic/social aspect OR if the author’s point is about youth, explain it from the perspective of a working adult or the government)
- adding additional tiers of development by counter-arguing it then rebutting it (A-CA-R structure, where the author’s argument is “A”, and your development is the “CA-R” part)
- explaining the argument in the context of Singapore/your country (provided that this is what the question asks for), using specific characteristics of Singapore to differentiate your argument from the author’s
- answering any “whys” that the author hasn’t answered, thus pushing the argument further
- illustrating the author’s argument with a range of new examples (this sort of development is weaker than those mentioned above)
