I admit that I know basically nothing about the Constitution. I'm embarassed. Well, I'm taking this class and I cannot find any of the answers for a whole bunch of questions they are asking. To be honest, if I had the slightest clue, it wouldn't be so different. But it is so hard for me. I get online and it is literally like reading a foreign language. I don't know how to explain this - it's like math to some people. It just doesn't make any sense to me.
I was wondering if I could post some of the questions here, if you guys could let me know if you have any idea???
Here is one question: (choose one answer)
One of the advantages is that it:
- is a mixed form of government
- concentrates power in the hands of one person
- allows the people to govern directly without representatives
- enables the wealthier classes to hold all political power.
The ability of one branch of government to prevent another branch from exceeding constutionally-given powers is known as:
-balance of powers
- checks and procedures
- checks and balances
- separation of powers
The federalists were more accepting of the Articles of Confederation than the anti-federalists
- true or false?
Can anybody help??
