Try the process of elimination while looking at a listing of the amendments:

For #1 --
How many amendments are there? (XXVII = ??)

For #2 --
Look at Amendment XVIII

For #3 --
Read all the "titles" of the Amendments and decide.

For #4 --
Look at Amendment XVI

Let me know if you need help reading Roman numerals.


the answer would be:

(4) The Sixteenth Amendment was ratified
and gave Congress the power to collect
income tax. Correct?
Thank you for your help!!
