What was the key difference between the government of the Roman Republic and the government of the Imperial Rome?

A. The government of the Roman Republic preffered peace; the government of Imperial Rome was warlike.
B. The Roman Republic was ruled by elected leaders; Imperial Rome was ruled by leaders who inherited power.
C. In the Roman Republic, there were written laws; In Imperial Rome, there were no written laws.
D. The Roman Republic was an indirect democracy; Imperial Rome was a direct democracy.

For my answer I don't think it is A and C, but I am not sure if it is A or B so that is what I need help in. You do not need to tell me the answer if you don't want to I just need help understanding.

  2. If the Empire was ruled by emperors who inherited power, how was that a democracy at all, much less a direct democracy? B and D are in direct contradiction of each other. It has to be one or the other.

  3. So I looked up the meaning for direct and indirect democracy. Indirect democracy: citizens elect representatives to make laws on their behalf. Direct democracy: is a form of democracy in which people decide.

    Thank you Reed for helping me.
