  17. Why is it easier for the prime minister of Britain to pass legislation than it is for the U.S. president?
    a) The United Kingdom is a federal system where the prime minister is chosen by the British queen. This provides the prime minister the opportunity to be politically aggressive to pass legislation. **my answer
    b) The United Kingdom is a parliamentary system where the prime minister is chosen by the courts. This allows the prime minister to be politically aggressive to pass legislation.
    c) The United Kingdom is a federal system where the prime minister is chosen by voters. This provides the prime minister with considerable legislative and executive power.
    d) The United Kingdom is a parliamentary system where the prime minister is chosen by and is part of the Parliament. This provides the prime minister with considerable legislative and executive power.
