Karl Marx developed the economic theory of communism.

Further Explanation:

One of Karl Marx’s most famous contributions came in his book the Communist Manifesto. This book explained Mark’s views on government, the economy, and ultimately lead to the creation of communism as an idea.

A communism system is one that is economic and political in nature. In this system, the government would control the means of production, the distribution of goods and resources, and would overall have significant control over society. This system of communism is the opposite of the capitalist/democratic system used in America today. These two ideologies would clash during the mid 20th century in what is now known as the Cold War.

Marx’s ideas were based on his observations of the world around him. He felt that the mistreatment of labor by industry and private corporations would ultimately lead to an uprising by angry laborers all over the world.

Answer:

The correct answer to the statement: Focus shifted away from Reconstruction, because…, is, B: Sluggish economy and rumors of a corrupt government.

Explanation:

During the period of 1868 and 1877, at the very end of Reconstruction, American focus turned from the importance of slavery abolition and the protection of slaves´ rights, to economic difficulties. This was really important for those who believed that African Americans did not need more rights than they had already received, especially those from the South, and it accomplished the removal of troops from the South. After such a long, and expensive war, and with the arrival of Rutherford B. Hayes, in 1876, Americans became more interested in re-starting their slowing and dwindling economy, than maintaining their fight against conservatives from the South who wished slavery to be restored.

Many democratic nations in Europe developed welfare states during the 20th century. All of the following are elements of a welfare state, EXCEPT A. old-age pensions B. unemployment insurance C. government ownership of farmland D. government-provided health care

Correct answer:  C. No government body has the right to make laws that infringe upon the Constitutional freedoms established by the government.

The second clause of Article VI of the Constitution is famously known as “The Supremacy Clause.”  The article asserts the supremacy of the Constitution over all over laws enacted in the land.  It reads as follows:

This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.

If the US Constitution is the “supreme Law of the Land,” then no government body has the right to make laws that infringe on Constitutional freedoms.

It is absolute function whose parent function f(x)=|x|

If the coefficient of |x| is positive then open upwards but here coefficient of -6 that is negative. Therefore, open downwards.

Option 3 is false

Absolute function is open only up or down. It neither open right nor left.

Option 4 is false.

Now we see horizontal compress and stretched.

If coefficient of |x| is greater than 1 then compress.

6>1 So, graph will stretched

Answer:

Correct answer here is D: an incorrect assumption that forms the basis of an argument.

Explanation:

The reason for this comes from the definition of what a false premise is. Basically, a false premise is an assumption, or an idea, that may be wrong, or is false, and leads to a conclusion that may also be wrong, but that is not illogical. This means that, because the premise, the main assumption, is wrong, my conclusion to it may also be wrong, but this doesn´t mean that both the premise, and/or the conclusion, are illogical or impossible. For example, when we say: It is a nice day, because the sun is shinning. Because the sun is shinning is the premise, or assumption, that leads to the conclusion that the day is nice. These two are logical, but it doesn´t mean that the day is nice BECAUSE of the sun shinning. There may be other truer reasons for the day to be nice, other than the sun shinning, which may lead to the  conclusion being wrong as well. This is why the correct answer is D.
