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 others are not true to the US government.

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

Each of the 3 branches check the other branches to preserve the balance of power.

The federalists were more accepting of the Articles of Confederation than the anti-federalists
- true or false?

(Had to look this one up) The Federalists supported a central government while the Anti-Federalists were against it (anti=against)

I hope this helps. We'll see if my year of teaching US history has paid off.
