  1. Its not an easy question. And the answer is not obvious. The correct answer, according the Census bureau, is C.

  2. Hummmm, as I re-read your question, I have my doubts about the answer. According to Census data, school districts have the greatest number local-government employees. However, Im not sure which has the greatest number of ELECTED officials. I'll bet a census-of-governments table has the answer you seek.
