Political And Judicial Quiz - Quiz

Take part in this to find out your knowledge when it comes to judiciary and political topics. These are some basic questions everyone should know answers of.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The Judicial Branch can veto a bill.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the judicial branch does not have the power to veto a bill. The power to veto a bill is held by the executive branch, specifically the President in the United States. The judicial branch's role is to interpret and apply the law, not to make or veto legislation.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    The President can pass or veto a bill.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The President has the power to pass or veto a bill. This means that they can either approve or reject a bill that has been passed by Congress. If the President passes the bill, it becomes law. However, if the President decides to veto the bill, they can send it back to Congress with their objections. Congress can then override the President's veto with a two-thirds majority vote in both the House of Representatives and the Senate. Therefore, the statement "The President can pass or veto a bill" is true.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the Supreme Court does not have the power to pass bills and make them into laws. The Supreme Court's role is to interpret and apply the law, not to create new laws. It is the responsibility of the legislative branch of government (such as Congress in the United States) to pass bills and for the executive branch to sign them into law.
