Answer:

The correct answer is C. A weakness of Congress under the Articles of Confederation was that it could not collect taxes.

Explanation:

The Articles of Confederation constituted the first government document of the United States of America. They were approved by the Second Continental Congress on November 15, 1777, after several months of debate. It was a non-binding guideline until its ratification four years later, on March 1, 1781.

The Articles supported the Continental Army and allowed the thirteen states to form a united front before the European powers. However, as a tool to build an effective government in times of war, it was a failure. Congress could make decisions, but did not have the power to apply them. Perhaps, the biggest setback was the requirement of unanimous approval of the 13 States to modify the articles. At the same time, the most important power that Congress lacked was the power to collect taxes: it could only request money from the States. These, for their part, did not always comply with the demands and Congress did not have the necessary funds for its operation.

I really need help please thank you so much Your teacher needs help! Before beginning the lessons on the U.S. Constitution, he asked his students to write essays on what they already knew. Now he has to correct those essays. Read the first essay and write a corrected version. The first two statements are correct. Fix the rest. You may list the corrections as bullet points. Then write a summary sentence about the Constitution. The U.S. Constitution was adopted on September 17, 1787 by the Constitutional Convention meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After ratification by 11 states (only 9 were required), the new United States government began operation in March of 1789. The Constitution establishes five branches of government that include the Congress, the president, the courts, the military, and the postal service. The Congress has two parts: a House of Senators and the Representatives. Each calls for two members and two alternates from each state. The president is responsible for introducing and passing all new laws, but the representatives can veto them. The highest court is called the Court of Special Appeals. The judges serve 10-year terms and are elected. Unlike the judges, the president is appointed by the Congress. The Constitution can be changed by a process called altering it. The first ten alterations to the Constitution are known together as the States’ Rights Acts. Alterations to the Constitution must be approved by half the states. Each branch of the government operates independently of the other. There is no system for separation of powers, which makes the government free of any checks and balances. Judicial review of whether laws are constitutional is possible only when the president asks for it.

Because we use this to help us stay on track with the money system.....

What conclusion about the media can be drawn from these headlines? A. Media coverage of an issue can result in public policy change. B. Social media can influence mainstream media content. C. Media sources often use dramatic language to try to draw readers. D. Media sources focus on different aspects of a story, shaping public opinion.

The fourth alternative is correct (D).

The role of the media in an election is to demonstrate in an unbiased way the ideas of the campaign candidates to voters so that they make their choices based on the convergence of principles and ideas.

However, media production is done by human beings, who have their own perceptions about what is relevant in the electoral context. In addition, the media is segmented, so that it is natural in one debate, one business newspaper to focus on economic issues while another focuses on something that it considers problematic, such as the issue of immigration.

In this way, it is concluded that the media focuses on different aspects of a story and is capable of shaping public opinion. This has a natural character derived from the purpose of the vehicle and human nature, but it can also be purposeful, in order to influence public opinion.
