  1. #1 is NOT D. "We hold these rights..." is very much an enlightenment idea.

    #2. You are mistaken here. The Anti-Federalists were anti- what? Were they not in favor of most rights remaining with the states and the individual citizen?

  3. For the second question I don't really agree with any of the answers given on the test. According to my school (directly from the study guide) an Anti-Federalist is someone who opposed the ratification of the constitution.
