I just need to check if I am right. Thank you.
All of the following influenced the Framers in developing the Constitution EXCEPT
a. State constitutions
b. John Locke's "Two Treatises of Government"
c. Virginia's royal charter
d. British tradition
I am almost certain it is d but I need verification. Thanks
I believe it's "a" -- are you sure the states had constitutions yet??
I agree with Writeacher -- a. is the correct answer. I checked the constitution dates for five of the original states and they were ratified between 1776 and 1780. The U.S. Constitution was ratified in 1791.
British tradition played a large part in the formulation of our Constitution.
The answers are B A & D.
