Read the excerpt from the US Supreme court case Plessy v. Ferguson (1896). The statute of Louisiana, acts of 1890, c. 111, requiring railway companies carrying passengers in their coaches in that State, to provide equal, but separate, accommodations for the white and colored races, by providing two or more passenger coaches for each passenger train, or by dividing the passenger coaches by a partition so as to secure separate accommodations; and providing that no person shall be permitted to occupy seats in coaches other than the ones assigned to them, on account of the race they belong to; and requiring the officer of the passenger train to assign each passenger to the coach or compartment assigned for the race to which he or she belong; and imposing fines or imprisonment upon passengers insisting on going into a coach or compartment other than the one set aide for the race to which he or she belongs; and conferring upon officers of the train power to refuse to carry on the train passengers refusing to occupy the coach or compartment assigned to them, and exempting the railway company from liability for such refusal, are not in conflict with the provisions either of the Thirteenth Amendment or of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. Which best explains why the Supreme Court’s decision in Plessy v. Ferguson was unconstitutional? The Supreme Court’s ruling allowed states to deny equal protection to any person within its jurisdiction. Since the 14th Amendment did not make concessions for people born outside the US, the Supreme Court’s decision could not be applied. The Supreme Court’s decision gave individual states the freedom to make their own laws in relation to non-whites. Since segregation laws did not provide equal protections or liberties to non-whites, the ruling was not consistent with the 14th Amendment.

Hey there!

Correct answer is D. Comma or Period Inside Rule

A. Question mark or exclamation point inside: those are not really necessary.

B. Colon or semicolon: not, a semicolon would divide the whole sentence and it would be shorten; a colon would work but after requested, when there is already a comma.

C. Question mark or Exclamation Point Outside Rule: would not work, becase it is an very polite and affirmative sentence.

D: A comma or period inside rule: actually, just a comma would work. Please, Cooper’s dad requested, go… Cooper’s dad requested must be in between commas as it is a vocative.

Hope this helps

I will FAN, give you POINTS and a MEDAL to the first person who helps me and gives me the right answer Amendment Idea Template Your Name ____

Step 1–Describe how amendments have affected Americans’ participation in government. Give specific examples from the lesson, including amendment names. 

Step 2–Brainstorm ideas for an amendment to the Constitution. What change do you think would make a positive difference in the United States? Ask trusted adults and friends for their ideas. Don’t worry about complete sentences or spelling in this step. 

Step 3–Choose an amendment idea from your brainstorming activity. Title of Your Amendment 27th amendment Write a paragraph to explain what this amendment will do and whom it will benefit. This amendment will deals with pay raises or decreases for members of Congress. . Those who will benefit the most will be members of Congress because Changes to Congressional pay must take effect after the next term of office for the representatives. 

Step 4–In your own words, explain the process that your amendment will have to follow to become law. First, the idea will have to another election would have had to occur before the pay raises can take effect. Alternatively, it could limit how Congress can increase how much its members are paid. Then it must the US Constitution can be changed or have additions made to it. Alternatively, it could then deletions and modifications are referred to as Constitutional Amendments. 

Step 5-In your own words, explain why this process is difficult to achieve but important to the nation. The amendment process is difficult because an incredible number of Constitutional Amendments have since been introduced to Congress (over 5000) but only 33 of these have been accepted and formally proposed by Congress, although only 27 constitutional amendments have been ratified (approved). However, it is important to have a way to amend the Constitution because  Only one of the constitutional amendments have been repealed (overturned) – the 21st Amendment that repealed Prohibition. An example of why it is so important is these additions, deletions and modifications are referred to as Constitutional Amendments.

Sorry if this doesn’t help but ,I tried.
