The steam engine, spinning jenny, and cotton gin were all significant inventions that contributed to the industrialization of England during this time.

This resulted in poor farmers losing access to common lands, which they relied on for grazing their livestock and growing crops. As a result, they were forced to either become landless laborers or move to cities in search of work.

    The correct answer is citizens hold the political power in government. This is because in a democracy, the power to govern and make decisions lies with the people who are citizens of the country. They have the right to vote and elect their representatives, who then make decisions on their behalf. This ensures that the government is accountable to the people and reflects their interests and values.

    A theocracy is a form of government in which religious leaders hold the highest authority. However, it is possible for a theocracy to coexist with other forms of government. For example, a country may have a theocratic system in which religious leaders have significant influence and power, but there may also be elements of democracy or monarchy in the government structure. This means that while the religious leaders may have a strong role in decision-making, there may be other branches or individuals within the government who have their own powers and responsibilities. Therefore, it is true that a theocracy can exist with other forms of government.
