  2. on 8, I suspect that is the answer your teacher wants you to regurgitate. Don't believe it. I guess it depends on what you think a Christian is... The facts on church attendence would indicate that Most People do not attend church, nor contribute to churches in the US.

    on nine, rethink what balance of power means. The constitution was designed to limit the power of the "king", and the power of "parliment".

    10 correct.
    On 11, I would think that D is the best answer
