    A fanatic is someone who is excessively and irrationally devoted to a particular cause or belief.

    • D.

      A democracy.

    Correct Answer
    A. A theocracy.
    Explanation
    A government ruled by a religious authority is referred to as a theocracy. In a theocracy, religious leaders hold the ultimate power and make decisions based on religious beliefs and principles. This type of government is different from a democracy where power is held by the people, or a faction which refers to a small, organized group within a larger entity. The given options also do not suggest that the government in Egypt is a theocracy, therefore the correct answer is a theocracy.
