I have listened to LSBF tutor and they say look for the question verbs.
Intellect 2 verbs -write 2 sentences.
Intellect 3 verbs -write 3 sentences.
And most importantly ,answer to the question.

It depends on how the question is written. Usually a 10 mark question has something like "Identify AND Discuss the elements that should be included in the PID.." Identifying might be 2 to 3 marks, 7 marks for discussing/explaining....its not really quantity that matters, it is about little knowledge but applying your discussion TO the scenario. The scenario is there to be used, interpreted and discussed.
