Please rethink several.
I know the meaning of all of this, and thank you.
But could you help me out with The UN, I can not seem to figure out if it a Unitary or Confederacy
Also is any of my answers wrong?
European Union is in a debate of being a confederate system and federal system, so what should I put?
I'm not sure why the UN is in here. It's not really a government in the same way nations have governments. If I HAD to choose one, though, I'd say "confederal" for the same reason as #5 is confederal.
Rethink #s 2, 3, 9.
Hmm thank you, what makes you think England is not a Unitary Government?
Uk is a unitary government controlling 4 provinces doesn't that make England Unitary too?
"England" and "The United Kingdom" are not interchangeable terms.
Then it would be federal since the powers are distributed among the royal family and the local government?
And what do you think about 2 and 9?
Since EU is not a Unitary Government it is obviously Confederal since it is "Of, relating to, or involving the activities of two or more nations"
Moreover Texas and State governments are Federal too since the local government and the state government work together however the state government has more control?
Am I correct?
"Confederal" for both.
Texas is a state within a federal entity. It cannot also be federal.
Hmm, I see the which means the local governments are the ones in power. So all the states have confederate systems.
Got it !
Thank you Writeacher.
And have a great morning :)
You're very welcome! You, too!!
