I should have been a pair of ragged claws Scuttling across the floors of silent seas.

1.As nations in Africa gained independence from colonial powers, some made relatively smooth transitions to self-rule while others experienced violence and upheaval. In some nations, the violence continues even today. What might have been done to help those nations transition to self-rule peacefully? Write a short essay that sets forth ideas on ways that violence and civil war might have been prevented.

I think, it's really hard to diminish the violent behavior in the current generation. The only way for African people to prevent violence and civil war is to create a strong law enforcement within the government and impose heavy punishment to the violent groups. Then, they should start to improve the quality of education to develop the young minds of Africa so they became a better generation than their previous one.

Most people began to appreciate the need to vote carefully in every election. C. People questioned the workings of the court system. D. People became more skeptical about politics and less trusting of government.

Answer:

D. People became more skeptical about politics and less trusting of government.

Explanation:

Although Richard Nixon had several achievements during his term, he is, perhaps, best remembered for being accused of being involved in the Watergate Scandal. Such event was the scandal resulting from the arrest of five burglars in the office of the Democratic National Committee in June 1972 that were connected to President Nixon’s reelection campaign. The burglars had been caught wiretapping phones and stealing documents.

Afterward, the President came to be in trouble with justice for trying to cover the crime and the documents, so, in order to avoid impeachment, he soon decided to resign from office. These events, which were clear proof of the government's corruption, increased American's skepticism about politics and the government.
