Writing essays I sometimes find difficulties with some topics of writing especially when I am asked to write an argumentative essay that it is required to write the cons and pros at the same time, so how can I manage to overcome this obstacle please?

It's difficult to teach academic/argumentative style essays (or really, any style) in one comment. That kind of thing would require a full course if you'd like to study it thoroughly. However, there are many guidelines that you can find online to get you on your way:

I would advise to first try to find your line of argument - i.e. what is it that you ultimately want to say? Your introduction and conclusion should state this. In between, you can explore all the pros and cons; for example, by letting them play off each other. Make sure to guide your reader all the while. :)

Practice makes perfect! By the way: "to write an argumentative essay in which I am required to write about the cons and pros at the same time"

Hmmm I guess you have to be knowledgeable enough beforehand so you are able to gather the sufficient informations about the topic you're willing to write down and argue afterwards,
