      Political economy

    • C. 

      International relations

      Sociology

    Correct Answer
    A. Enterpreneurship 
    Explanation
    Entrepreneurship is not related to political science because it is the study and practice of starting and managing a business venture. It focuses on aspects such as innovation, risk-taking, and creating value in the market. Political science, on the other hand, is the study of political systems, government, and the behavior of individuals and groups within a political context. While political economy, international relations, and sociology are all closely related to political science, entrepreneurship is not directly concerned with the study of politics or political systems.

      Structuralism

    • B. 

      Negativism

    • C. 

      Interpretivism

    Correct Answer
    B. Negativism
    Explanation
    Negativism is not an effective approach used in political science. Negativism refers to a negative or pessimistic attitude towards political processes and institutions, which does not contribute to the understanding or analysis of political phenomena. In contrast, structuralism, interpretivism, and behaviouralism are all valid and widely used approaches in political science. Structuralism focuses on the underlying structures and systems that shape political behavior, interpretivism emphasizes the subjective meanings and interpretations of political actors, and behaviouralism examines the observable actions and behaviors of individuals and groups in politics.

The Soviet Union was a socialist state that aimed to establish a classless society where the means of production are owned and controlled by the community as a whole. In a communist system, there is no private ownership of property and the government centrally plans and controls the economy. The Soviet Union under the leadership of the Communist Party implemented a planned economy where the state had control over all aspects of production, distribution, and consumption.
