Each state has two senators representing its people. This is based on the principle of equal representation in the United States Senate, where each state, regardless of its population size, is represented by two senators. This ensures that smaller states have an equal voice in the legislative process compared to larger states. The number of senators is fixed at two per state, regardless of the state's population.

Each state is allocated a certain number of Representatives based on their population, with more populous states having more Representatives. This ensures that each state has proportional representation in the House and that the voices of the people are heard. The average age of the people living there and the amount of money the state pays in taxes are not factors that determine the number of Representatives.

It addresses the recipient in a formal and polite manner, setting the tone for a professional and respectful conversation. The other options, such as "Hey dude" and "Wa's Up?", are too casual and informal for a formal letter. "Hi" is also less formal and can be seen as too informal for a formal letter.

Explanation
The Selective Service is commonly known as "the draft." This refers to a system where individuals are required to serve in the military, usually during times of war or national emergency. This term is widely used and understood to mean the process of compulsory military service. The other options provided (incarceration, juvenile detention, involuntary manslaughter) are unrelated to the Selective Service and do not serve as alternative names for it.

• D.

Pregnant women who want to receive government assistance.

B. Men, age 18, who are citizens or residing in this country.
Explanation
The correct answer is "men, age 18, who are citizens or residing in this country." This is because the Selective Service is a requirement for all male citizens and immigrants residing in the United States between the ages of 18 and 25. It is a system that maintains information on potential military service eligibility in case a draft is ever needed. Women are currently not required to sign up for Selective Service. The statement about all US children being signed up at birth is incorrect, as Selective Service registration is only required for males when they reach the age of 18. The statement about pregnant women wanting government assistance is unrelated to the Selective Service requirement.

A. True
Explanation
According to the question, those who sign up for selective service must inform the government each time they move. The correct answer is True, indicating that it is indeed a requirement for individuals who have signed up for selective service to inform the government whenever they change their residence. This ensures that the government has updated and accurate information about individuals who are eligible for military conscription if the need arises.

However, "taking away the first born child" is not a penalty that is typically associated with failing to register with Selective Service.
