Hey, I take it you mean an LO2 question? If so I think time only really allows for 3 points for and against as long as you are writing detailed. However if your points tend to be brief then I would advise writing as many as possible.
In out NAB today we had to describe the extent of political progress made by ethnic minorities in recent years; I wrote three positive examples of progress with countering arguments with the odd extra bit of information I could remember which took up about a page and a half of A4.
As you said time is limited so basically memorise three, possibly four, good detailed examples (including for and against arguments) and I am sure you will have enough points to cover the 10 marks.
Good luck!
