  2. That is incorrect.
    The answer is C; Federalism is a compromise between a unitary and a confederate government.
    "They did not want an all-powerful and distant government dictating local matters, so they rejected the unitary system. But giving too little power to the national government—under the confederate system they had used with the Articles of Confederation—had caused too many problems. The compromise was a federal system, in which power is shared by a strong national government with several strong state governments."
