constitution
So many questions posed on here are confusing in the way they're worded. No wonder students get confused! I think you are correct on this one, but B also seems to pose no restraint. Once confirmed and in office, a Supreme Court justice is not constrained by the president ...

I think it's A. The standing test has to do with harm done. Just last year the Supreme Court turned down (did not hear) an appeal of the gay marriage ruling in California because the group that brought the suit was not harmed in any way by the lower court decisions, ...

constitution
To have standing in what context? To file a suit in court? If so, no, B is not enough. Usually it must have been harmed in some measurable way by the action being disputed. Just representing an opposing viewpoint is not usually enough to have "standing." On question ...

Constitution
I disagree. Under the voting rights act of 1965 gerrymandering for racial reasons is prohibited and subject to judicial action. A decision in Congress that an amendment to a bill has been ratified, or an amendment to the constitution, is a matter of doing the math according to...

First, it's compare and CONTRAST, not contract. Please look up those words so you know what to look for. I'm not sure what your assignment is, but if it is to compare and contrast life in the 1500s with life today, that should be easy. Are we likely to bury people ...

History
You also need to look at why the Soviet Union wanted to expand its influence around it's borders. How many times had European powers invaded Russia? What happened, what agreements were reached, at Yalta in 1945? And why? The Cold War was a manifestation of things that had ...

Actually, I think B is the answer you must give, but it's not a very good summary of either Whitman or Emerson and transcendentalism. The point I think Whitman made again and again was that there is the universal in all of us, as experienced in every day life, which is ...

I'm not sure what the blank in your question refers to. Ms. Sue suggests "rhetorical." If someone asks a rhetorical question, they often mean to address it, if not give a definitive answer.

Yes, the answer is B. The more bales of cotton or bushels of corn produced, the price per unit went down, but the farmer made it up in selling more of it. The consumer paid less, so benefited.

It's a confusing statement because "history," the written record of human experience, won't end until the human race ends. But Marx thought that communism would end the era of history or the world as we knew it up until his proposed changes could be effected...

Question 7: The XYZ Affair was controversial, but it can be argued that the Alien and Sedition Acts were too extreme and too unpopular. If you read your textbook, you'll find that they made it illegal to criticize the president or the government, which is antithetical to ...
