I don't know how helpful this will be for you as I am not a history student but I'll give a few tips for how to answer questions that begin with "To what extent..." in general. When this question is asked, the evaluators are basically asking for to what degree is something, whether it be the accuracy, the relevancy, the reliability, etc. of some element. In this case, you need to weigh both the positives and the negatives of the situation, the treaty or whatever it may be. For example, you may talk about the economic benefits of a certain war but then talk about the political disadvantages of this same war. Then, you will need to conclude with how accurate, relevant, reliable, etc. this element was by determining if positives outweigh the negatives, vice versa or if they are both equal. Hopefully, I was able to help you to some extent with my answer :)
