To select an essay question

Hello, Joining a M.A. taught course, I have got assignments to write essays (word limit: 3500 for one, 5000 for the other). My concern is that I cannot decide which question I want to answer... Is it better to choose a topic in which I am most interested? or is it better to write the most arguable one that I can reach many academic source? It would be highly appreciated if anyone could advise me on this matter. Thank you!  :)

Academic writing in a second language

Hi, I'm struggling a bit with my academic writing. English is my second language, I write and talk in day to day situations no problem but making sure my language is up to standard for my research proposals etc. is proving difficult.
