Which of the following was formally amended to the constitution

a. equality of rights for women
b. prohibition of alcoholic beverages
c. prohibition of child labor
d. balanced federal budget

I know that the 19th amendment is woman suffrage, but the 18th amendment is the prohibition of alcohol and the 21st amendment is the repeal of prohibition. So is the answer a?

The only formal amendment to the Constitution was the prohibition of alcoholic beverages (18th amendment). Yes, it was later repealed, but prohibition was formally amended to the Constitution.

The 19th Amendment only gave women the right to vote. It did not give women other rights.

Your answer is b.
