    I don't understand what they are asking

  • American government -

    Study these features of Congress:

    party voting,
    powerful speaker of the House,
    highly specialized committee structure,
    etc.

    You need to answer these questions about each of the features:
    Do they
    (a) lead to more or less logical and coherent policies?
    (b) lead to more or less representation of various local and parochial interests?
    (c) make it easier or harder to pass legislation?

    For party voting, I think it leads to less logical and coherent polices. It also less representation and makes it harder to pass legislation.
