Under the Articles, each state sent one delegate to Congress. Thus each state, no matter size or population, had one vote. Congress did have the power to declare war. It could appoint military officers, coin money, and operate post offices. It was also responsible for foreign affairs and could sign treaties.

Based on the excerpt from the text, what was one potential problem with the Articles of Confederation?

A. Congress alone had the power to declare war.
B.Smaller states had the same voting power in Congress as larger states.
C.States could no longer deal directly with foreign countries.
D.There was no civilian control of the military

My answer is C
But if you can explain to me if it's wrong, please do.

  1. Ms. Sue

    I disagree.

    Is it fair that people in a state with lots of people had less voice in government than people in a small state?

  2. Cookie Thumper

    No, so would it be B because they have the same voting power?

  3. Ms. Sue

    Yes, B.

  4. Ms. Sue

    That's why the Constitution mandated two houses of Congress. The Senate has two representatives from each state. The House has a representative for each so many voters.

  5. Cookie Thumper

    Thank you very much for helping me understand it

  6. Ms. Sue

    You're welcome.
