thanks, I have another question that I'm confused by: What politician marked the return of the powerful Speaker of the House?

Hi Tylar, I believe the answer you're looking for is Joseph Cannon, who served as Speaker of the House at the beginning of the 1900s. Before him, Henry Clay had been a powerful speaker in the early 1800s, but no one else in between those two comes to my mind (unless the question is about more recent times). Hope that helps!

It's more recent times, these are the answer options and I don't know which one it is: A. Nancy Pelosi B. Paul Ryan C. Newt Gingrich D. Dennis Hastert

Oh, in that case, I'd have to say Newt Gingrich, who was speaker in the 1990s and who reshaped the House of Representatives during his time in power. The other three options are speakers who came after Gingrich, and who were weaker (except Pelosi).

I have a question about this one: Which of the following is not one of the reasons power was centralized in a commander in chief via the Constitution? A. The US was surrounded by antagonistic foreign powers B. The US was facing rebellions at home C. The Framers wanted the government to be more responsive to threats D. The Congress was overburdened with logistical issues following the ratification of the Constitution

Hmm, I would pick choice A for this one. The US was not surrounded by enemy countries, as neither Canada nor Mexico at the time were threats to the US. If anything, we were much more worried at that time about European countries, but they were separated from the US by an ocean, making them less of a direct threat.

ok thanks, I also have a few other questions since no other tutor has helped me with the questions of these ones: Why is it important that the president can be first mover when it comes to certain political actions? A. Congress is legally bound to follow the president B. Congress’s choices become politically limited C. Executive actions are legally binding and irreversible D. None of the above True or False: the president's role in the legislative process is quite substantial. True or False: the power of the president has decreased steadily since World War I.
