    The main governing authority in almost all of Georgia's counties is the board of commissioners. This board is responsible for making decisions and policies regarding county affairs, including budgeting, zoning, and public services. They are elected officials who represent the interests of the county residents and work together to ensure the smooth functioning of the county government. The board of commissioners plays a crucial role in local governance and has the power to enact and enforce laws and regulations that affect the county and its residents.

    Rate this question:

    Which county official is elected rather than appointed?                      

    • A.

      Clerk

    A commissioner is a county official who is elected by the people rather than being appointed. This means that the residents of the county have the power to vote for their preferred candidate for the position of commissioner. The other options listed, such as clerk, registrar, and road supervisor, are typically appointed positions where individuals are chosen by other officials or governing bodies rather than being elected by the public.

    Explanation
    A municipality is a term used to describe a city with its own government. It refers to a specific administrative division that has the power to govern itself and make decisions on local matters. This term is often used to differentiate cities from towns or villages, which may not have the same level of autonomy or self-governance.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Why would large cities in Georgia be more likely than small cities to use an elected council and full-time manager?                    

    • A.

      Small cities in Georgia are required by the state to have a mayor and not a full-time manager.

    • B.

      Large cities need a full-time manager to take care of the complex problems of a large population.

    • C.

      Large cities in Georgia are required by the state to have an elected council and a full-time manager.

    • D.

      Small cities have little reason to have a council but need a full-time manager to supervise the many complicated activities involved in running a city.

    Correct Answer
    B. Large cities need a full-time manager to take care of the complex problems of a large population.
    Explanation
    Large cities with a larger population face more complex problems and require more comprehensive management. A full-time manager can provide the necessary expertise and attention to handle these issues effectively. Small cities, on the other hand, may not have the same level of complexity and can manage with a mayor rather than a full-time manager. Therefore, the use of an elected council and full-time manager is more likely in large cities in Georgia to address the challenges associated with a larger population.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which description of a council-manager form of city government is FALSE?                       

    • A.

      The council is appointed or elected.

    • B.

      The mayor may be appointed or elected.

    • C.

      The city council establishes laws and policies.

    • D.

      The city manager oversees the day-to-day operation of government.

    Correct Answer
    A. The council is appointed or elected.
    Explanation
    The council is not appointed or elected in a council-manager form of city government. In this form, the city council is elected by the citizens, and they establish laws and policies. The mayor may be appointed or elected, and the city manager is responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operation of the government.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which is the most common type of city government in Georgia?                       

    • A.

      Board of commissioners-mayor

    • B.

      Council-manager

    • C.

      Mayor-council

    • D.

      Commission

    Correct Answer
    C. Mayor-council
    Explanation
    The most common type of city government in Georgia is the mayor-council system. In this system, the city is governed by a mayor who is elected by the residents and a council made up of elected members. The mayor has executive powers and is responsible for implementing policies and making decisions for the city, while the council acts as a legislative body, making laws and regulations. This system allows for a separation of powers and provides checks and balances within the city government.

    D. In a strong-mayor form of government, the mayor only performs ceremonial duties.
    Explanation
    In a strong-mayor form of government, the mayor has more power and authority, including the responsibility of preparing the budget. Therefore, the statement that the mayor only performs ceremonial duties in a strong-mayor form of government is false.

      Are under 18 and who commit acts that would not be considered crimes if they were committed by adults.

    Correct Answer
    C. Are under 17 and who commit acts that would be crimes if they were committed by adults.
    Explanation
    Delinquent juveniles are individuals who are under the age of 17 and engage in actions that would be considered crimes if they were committed by adults. This definition distinguishes delinquent juveniles from other categories mentioned, such as those who commit traffic offenses or individuals who are neglected or abused by a parent or guardian.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Juveniles in Georgia are NOT guaranteed the right to                        

    • A.

      Bail.

    • B.

      A fair trial.

    • C.

      An attorney.

    • D.

      Due process.

    Correct Answer
    A. Bail.
    Explanation
    Juveniles in Georgia are not guaranteed the right to bail. This means that if a juvenile is arrested, they may not have the option to be released from custody by posting bail. This is different from adults, who are generally entitled to bail unless they are charged with a capital offense or are considered a flight risk. Juveniles in Georgia may have to remain in custody until their trial or until another alternative to detention is determined by the court.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Juveniles who commit specific serious and violent crimes may be placed under the jurisdiction of which state court?                        

    • A.

      Magistrate.

    • B.

      Supreme.

    • C.

      Superior.

    • D.

      Juvenile.

    Correct Answer
    C. Superior.
    Explanation
    Juveniles who commit specific serious and violent crimes may be placed under the jurisdiction of the superior court. The superior court handles cases that involve more serious offenses and has the authority to impose harsher penalties. This is different from the juvenile court, which typically handles cases involving minors who have committed less serious offenses and focuses more on rehabilitation rather than punishment. The magistrate court and supreme court do not typically handle cases involving juvenile offenders.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Which protection does NOT apply to juveniles in Georgia’s courts?           

    • A.

      The right to present a defense, introduce evidence, and testify on one’s own behalf.

    • B.

      The right to confront and question witnesses against them.

    • C.

      The right to be represented by an attorney.

    • D.

      The right to a trial before a jury of peers.

    Correct Answer
    D. The right to a trial before a jury of peers.
    Explanation
    Juveniles in Georgia's courts do not have the right to a trial before a jury of peers. Instead, their cases are typically heard and decided by a judge. This is because the purpose of the juvenile justice system is to focus on rehabilitation rather than punishment, and a jury trial may not be considered appropriate for this purpose.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    The first step when a juvenile is taken into custody is                       

    • A.

      A formal hearing.

    • B.

      A dispositional hearing.

    • C.

      An intake investigation.

    • D.

      An adjudicatory hearing.

    Correct Answer
    C. An intake investigation.
    Explanation
    When a juvenile is taken into custody, the first step is typically an intake investigation. This involves gathering information about the juvenile's background, including their family, school, and prior history. The purpose of the intake investigation is to assess the needs and risks of the juvenile and determine the most appropriate course of action, such as whether to release them to their parents, place them in a diversion program, or proceed with further legal action. A formal hearing, dispositional hearing, and adjudicatory hearing are all subsequent steps in the juvenile justice process.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Which type of juvenile hearing is similar to a trial?                   

    • A.

      An adjudicatory hearing.

    • B.

      A dispositional hearing.

    • C.

      A sentencing hearing.

    • D.

      A formal hearing.

    Correct Answer
    C. A sentencing hearing.
    Explanation
    An adjudicatory hearing is a type of juvenile hearing where the judge determines whether the juvenile is guilty or innocent of the charges. A dispositional hearing is a type of juvenile hearing where the judge decides on the appropriate treatment or rehabilitation plan for the juvenile. A formal hearing is a general term that can refer to any type of official hearing. However, a sentencing hearing is specifically focused on determining the appropriate punishment or consequences for the juvenile, similar to a trial where a sentence is determined for a defendant.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    In a dispositional hearing, the judge                        

    • A.

      Determines the punishment.

    • B.

      Pronounces the punishment.

    • C.

      Advises the juvenile of his/her rights.

    • D.

      Hears the charges against the juvenile.

    Correct Answer
    A. Determines the punishment.
    Explanation
    In a dispositional hearing, the judge determines the punishment for the juvenile. This means that the judge evaluates the evidence and considers the circumstances of the case to decide on an appropriate punishment for the juvenile offender. The judge takes into account factors such as the severity of the offense, the juvenile's criminal history, and any mitigating or aggravating factors before making a decision on the punishment. This is different from pronouncing the punishment, which would imply that the judge simply announces or declares the punishment without any evaluation or consideration.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    If the juvenile judge determines the youth is not guilty, which is the only hearing that is held?                       

    • A.

      Adjudicatory hearing.

    • B.

      Informal adjustment

    • C.

      Dispositional hearing

    • D.

      Sentencing hearing

    Correct Answer
    A. Adjudicatory hearing.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is adjudicatory hearing. This is the only hearing that is held if the juvenile judge determines that the youth is not guilty. During an adjudicatory hearing, the judge listens to the evidence and determines whether the youth committed the alleged offense. If the judge finds the youth not guilty, the case is typically dismissed and no further hearings are required.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    Which is correct concerning the structure of the Georgia State Constitution?                     

    • A.

      All parts of the constitution are written under one long section.

    • B.

      After the preamble, each piece of the government, including a bill of rights, is explained in its own section.

    • C.

      It is a short document that consists only of a preamble, bill of rights, and a brief description of the three branches of government.

    • D.

      It is unique because there is no bill of rights in it.

    Correct Answer
    B. After the preamble, each piece of the government, including a bill of rights, is explained in its own section.
    Explanation
    The correct answer states that after the preamble, each piece of the government, including a bill of rights, is explained in its own section. This means that the Georgia State Constitution is structured in a way that each aspect of the government is outlined separately, allowing for a clear and organized understanding of the constitution's contents.

    Correct Answer
    A. Crimes committed by juveniles that result in the courts treating the juveniles as adults.
    Explanation
    Georgia's "Seven Deadly Sins" refer to crimes committed by juveniles that result in the courts treating them as adults. This means that if a juvenile commits one of these specific crimes, they will be subjected to the same legal process and potential penalties as an adult offender. The term "Seven Deadly Sins" is used metaphorically to emphasize the severity and consequences of these particular offenses.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    Which is considered one of Georgia’s “Seven Deadly Sins” when committed by a 16-year-old?

    Dividing the government into executive, legislative, and judicial branches is MOST related to the concept of                        

    • A.

      Separation of powers.

    • B.

      Segregation of schools.

    • C.

      The county unit system.

    • D.

      weak-mayor councils.

    Correct Answer
    A. Separation of powers.
    Explanation
    Dividing the government into executive, legislative, and judicial branches is most related to the concept of separation of powers. This concept ensures that power is not concentrated in one branch of government, but rather distributed among different branches. Each branch has its own distinct powers and responsibilities, serving as a system of checks and balances, preventing any one branch from becoming too powerful. This helps to maintain a balance of power and protect against potential abuses of power. The other options, such as segregation of schools, the county unit system, and weak-mayor councils, are not directly related to the division of government powers.

    • B.

      Cities have no actual political power in Georgia.

    • C.

    Correct Answer
    C. Georgia, Counties are still the primary source of local political power.
    Explanation
    In Georgia, counties still hold the primary source of local political power. This means that counties have more influence and decision-making authority compared to cities. Unlike many other states where large cities dominate political and cultural decisions, Georgia maintains a system where counties play a significant role in shaping the state's political landscape.

    Counties were originally set up in Georgia to establish political centers for rural areas. This means that the creation of counties aimed to provide a local government structure and administration for the rural regions of Georgia. By establishing political centers in these areas, it allowed for better governance and decision-making at the local level, ensuring that the needs and interests of the rural population were represented and addressed effectively.

    Explanation
    Special-purpose governments in Georgia have the role of creating and enforcing laws or rules that are specific to certain areas such as education or city development. They are responsible for developing and implementing policies and regulations that are tailored to address the needs and requirements of these specific sectors. These governments are focused on ensuring the proper functioning and growth of these areas by enacting laws and regulations that are specific to their needs.

    • B.

      Strong mayor-council

    • C.

      Special purpose government

    Correct Answer
    B. Strong mayor-council
    Explanation
    Based on the information provided, the city has a strong mayor-council form of local government. This is indicated by the fact that Tonya, as the mayor, has full responsibility for the city's operations, including the power to appoint people to run different departments. Additionally, the fact that the city council was able to override her veto suggests that there is a separation of powers between the mayor and the council, further supporting the strong mayor-council structure.

    Rate this question:

  • 30. 

    Which step of the justice system is ONLY found in the juvenile justice process?                  

    • A.

      Arrest

    • B.

      Hearing

    • C.

      Trial

    • D.

      Commitment

    Correct Answer
    D. Commitment
    Explanation
    The step of commitment is only found in the juvenile justice process. Commitment refers to the placement of a juvenile offender in a secure facility, such as a detention center or a residential treatment program. This step is unique to the juvenile justice system as it focuses on rehabilitating and providing guidance to young offenders rather than solely punishing them. Arrest, hearing, and trial are common steps in both the juvenile and adult justice systems.

    Rate this question:

  • 31. 

    Why is committing armed robbery with a firearm a significant offense when committed by a juvenile?              

    • A.

      Judges often treat armed robbery with a firearm the same way they treat manslaughter.

    • B.

      The juvenile must get a job and pay for everything taken during the robbery.

    • C.

      The crime can subject the juvenile to the adult criminal process.

    • D.

      It carries a mandatory life sentence.

    Correct Answer
    C. The crime can subject the juvenile to the adult criminal process.
    Explanation
    Committing armed robbery with a firearm is a significant offense when committed by a juvenile because it can subject the juvenile to the adult criminal process. This means that the juvenile will be treated as an adult and face the same legal consequences as an adult would for the same crime. This can include harsher penalties, longer prison sentences, and a permanent criminal record. Treating juveniles as adults in cases of armed robbery with a firearm is done to deter such behavior and ensure that appropriate punishment is given for a serious and dangerous crime.

Then, if necessary, the juvenile may be placed in detention. After that, a formal hearing is conducted to determine the juvenile's guilt or innocence. Once the formal hearing is completed, the sentencing takes place. Finally, if the juvenile or their legal representative disagrees with the decision, they can file an appeal.
