How to avoid generic responses to short answer questions

Hey, I've got my first eng lang SAC coming up (which is going to be answering short answer questions in response to an informal written text). But I feel like all my responses are quite generic, so I was wondering how to make my answers more specific to the text.
Thanks!

How did you go on your SAC?

To make your answers more specific, ensure your explanations include relevance/inclusion of the context (situational or otherwise).

If it sounds like your answer could be copied and pasted for a similar question that had a different text, then it is too generic.
The key is to answer it efficiently enough that you don't overdo the 'context' and sacrifice writing time. Write coherently but also efficiently. Your answer should solely work for the text you are analysing.
