How did Jackson solve the issue of states' rights? A: He lowered federal tariffs but affirmed his power to use the military to collect them. B: He allowed the Southern states to ignore the federal laws with which they disagreed. C: He allowed South Carolina to secede from the Union. D: He invaded South Carolina and forced John Calhoun out of office.

The correct answer is A) He lowered federal tariffs but affirmed his power to use the military to collect them.

The states rights issue referred to in the question dealt with the Tariff of "Abominations." This name of the tariff, given to by Southern politicians, showed their distain for this tax on foreign goods. This is due to the fact that many Southerners made significant profits through trading with other countries.

Some Southerners went as far as to nullify this tariff. Nullification is a process in which a state ignores a federal law or ruling because they believe it is unconstitutional. This resulted in controversy between Northerners, Southerners, and the president (Andrew Jackson). Ultimately the tariff was lowered but Jackson reinforced the idea that the federal government still has control over the states, especially when it comes to following federal laws.

Imagine that a rent control of $600 a month is imposed for some of the apartments in the city where you choose to live. In 1 or 2 sentences, describe how this would increase your monthly personal income. Now suppose the rent control has also caused a housing shortage, and you cannot find an apartment to live in for $600. In 1 or 2 sentences, explain how this would affect your living conditions.

A rent control apartment is less expensive so you would have to spend less on housing costs and that means you get to keep more of your money.

If rent control causes a shortage of housing, your living standard will decrease; you will have to live somewhere you may not like just because there is not enough apartments available to choose from

Read the following quotation from Catholic bishop Jacques-Bénigne Bossuet at the court of Louis XIV. Rulers then act as the ministers of God and as his lieutenants on earth. It is through them that God exercises his empire. . . . Consequently, as we have seen, the royal throne is not the throne of a man, but the throne of God himself. Who would most likely have disagreed with the bishop’s point of view? (A) a French aristocrat (B) a bishop who was not a member of the royal court (C) a member of the British Parliament (D) an absolute monarch from Spain or Russia

He was a strong supporter of political and royal absolutism, and the divine right of the kings.  He claimed that the kings received power from God.  As such, he was a strong advocate of the struggle against Protestantism, even published the work "Exposition on the Doctrine of the Catholic Church on the Matters of Controversy", where he is addressing his point on the subject.

Which best describes Carrie Chapman Catt’s “Winning Plan” to achieve national women's suffrage? to demand a constitutional amendment instead of campaigning for suffrage in individual states to campaign strongly for women’s suffrage on the state level instead of lobbying Congress to pass a constitutional amendment to win women’s suffrage in as many states as possible while campaigning Congress to pass a constitutional amendment to amend the US Constitution to grant women suffrage and then establish it in individual states

I believe the answer is: to win women's suffrage in as many states as possible while campaigning Congress to pass a constitutional amendment.

Catt's winning plan revolve around selecting the government representatives that openly support suffrage movement to have a position in the legislative body.

By doing this in as many states as possible, the suffrage movement would have enormous power that force the federal government to conform and created an amendment to guarantee women's right to vote.

Select all that apply. get approval from president work on a subcommittee to amend a bill get approved by the committee work with lobbyist to pass legislation through the House pass the Senate vote, and move to the other chamber

I believe the answer is:

After passing the subcommittee's test, the bill would be reviewed by the committee in order to see whether it's can be realized with their current budget. After that, the bill would be passed to the senate so each representatives from states could vote for the bill. Simple majority (more than 50% votes) would make the bills able to move to other chamber.

Why was Mesopotamia's location between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers significant to the development of a civilization? a) They were close to the ocean, which provided an abundant food source. b) The rich soil and the proximity to fresh water created a natural area for crop irrigation. c) The nomadic tribes settled in the area since they had previously covered the entire region. d) The Egyptians had left structures the Mesopotamians could use for housing.

The correct answer is B.

The emergence of agriculture and the beginning of sedentary settlements and civilizations, constituted the start of the Neolithic period of human history, and took place in Mesopotamia's territories, between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. This area counted with the natural conditions for crop irrigation with the rudimentary techniques available at the time.

Agriculture and sedentarism brought specialization and division of labor. Specialization allowed to improve the instruments and tools used for each activity and productivity was rapidly enhanced. For the first time in history, men produced more than they could consume and trade started to happen.
