It's sometimes called the 'people's house'.

They are chosen from smaller districts because there are way more representatives than senate members, so all chosen representatives are supposed to represent smaller groups of people and stand up for them. That's why they are called the people's house.

What was problematic about the 1876 presidential election

Answer:

The presidential elections of 1876 were the most disputed and intense in the electoral history of the United States of America. Samuel J. Tilden of New York, defeated the Republican candidate, Rutherford B. Hayes, originally from Ohio, in the popular vote. Thus, Tilden would receive 184 electoral votes against 165 of Hayes, but 20 votes were not counted, and were in dispute, and came from the states of Florida, Louisiana and South Carolina. Each party declared its voters as winners, but in Ohio a Democratic elector was dismissed from his position for holding a public office. Finally, Hayes assumed the presidency on March 4, 1877.

In the jewish ten commandments what is the significance of graven images? A.graven images represent false gods B.graven images represents crops C.graven images represent the sun D.graven images represent israelites leaders

The correct answer is C) graven images represent false gods

In the Jewish ten commandments, the significance of graven images is "graven images represent false gods."

When the Ten Commandments refer to the graven images, it is referring to the false idols that should never be worshiped. Hebrew people believed in the existence of just one supreme God, Yahveh. He was the only God to be worshiped. Let's remember the moment in the biblical Old Testament when Moses descended from the mountain and saw the Hebrew people partying and adoring wooden and stone idols and Moses got mad at them for worshiping false idols.
