  2. Technically, none of those answers is correct.

    The executive branch appoints federal judges, but they must be approved by the legislative branch.

    The executive branch ratifies treaties, but they, too must be approved by the legislative branch.

    Both B and C are wrong.

  3. That is why I needed help with this question. It's like a 50/50 chance. I'ma go with D, Ratifies treaties. Thank you for your help though! :D

  7. Sorry didn't finish my answer LOL, but yes the correct answer is D, ratification.

    'Two-thirds of both houses of Congress voted for proposal. Then three-fourths of the state legislatures voted to ratify, making the amendment part of the Constitution. Each state makes its own schedule. Therefore, a proposed amendment could wait months or years for ratification.' - Connexus Acad


    Highlight, Congress votes for the proposal of the ratification.
