If you think it really doesn’t work at all for TOK, replace it with an entirely new question of your own and explain why yours is the more necessary/valid question.
In the end, you should still have SIX questions, so make careful choices! You MUST consider what is meant by ‘fit’ for TOK / TOK-‘worthy. Tying your answers in to the objectives of the course (listed in your course outline) would therefore be very helpful, as would be using specific TOK-‘speak’ (consider the terms we have learned thus far). Each question/justification is worth 3 marks (with an additional 2 marks for overall use of TOK-speak / references to objectives, for a total of 20 marks), so ensure you write enough for full marks!
