1.Which of the following is one way the U.S. Constitution expanded the power of the central government? -Creation of a judicial branch -Creation of a national bank -Creation of the Electoral College -Creation of the Monroe Doctrine 2.The Constitution created which of the following to elect the president? -A judicial committee -Three-fifths Compromise -Electoral College -The Preamble 3.Which of these was an argument for the New Jersey Plan? -It allowed slaves to have representation in Congress. -It provided too much power to the states in wartime. It gave the advantage to states that had higher numbers of people. It would provide equal representation for each state.

The correct answer to number 1 is A) Creation of a judicial branch.

In the US Constitution, it does not specifically discuss the Monroe Doctrine or the idea of a national bank. This makes statements 2 and 4 incorrect. Statement 3 is referred to in the constitution, however the electoral college deals with voting procedures for a president and has nothing to do with the federal governments power. This shows that only number 1 can be correct.

The correct answer to number two is Electoral College

This system is still used today to elect our president. Each state is given a number of electoral votes based on their population.

The correct answer to number three is It would provide equal representation for each state.

The New Jersey Plan argued for a unicameral legislature with all states being represented equally, regardless of population size. This plan was pushed by the smaller states, as they did not want large states like Virginia having more political power than they did.
