Please help if you can.
1. The idea that the people have the right to abolish an abusive and unresponsive government was FIRST formally expressed by Americans in the

a. Constitution
b. Petition of Right
c. Declaration of Rights
d. Declaration of Independence

I think it's b. Petition of Right, but am not sure

2. Which of the following accounts for the ability of the Constitution to endure for more than 200 years?

a. built-in provisions for accomodating change
b. detailed provisions that anticipated changing customs
c. very specific language that limits reinterpretation

I am stumped. Please help. Thanks

Although b and c were written before the Declaration of Independence, only the latter dealt with abolishing oppressive government. The answer is 1d.

The other answer is 2a.
