    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Power is potentially demonstrated throughout a conflict by armed forces, sanctions, and voting. Armed forces can show power through the use of military strength and the ability to exert force. Sanctions can be a form of power by imposing economic restrictions on a country or entity, causing them to comply with certain demands. Voting can also be a demonstration of power, as it allows individuals or groups to express their preferences and influence decision-making processes. Therefore, all of the above options have the potential to demonstrate power in a conflict.

    Correct Answer
    D. Most parties consider a lose-lose possibility
    Explanation
    Most parties do not consider a lose-lose possibility. In conflicts, parties typically have their own goals and interests and often believe that they can achieve a win-lose outcome where they come out on top. They may not consider the possibility of both sides losing or reaching a lose-lose outcome. This belief in a potential win for their side can contribute to the escalation of conflicts and the competitive approach taken by each party.

      Science of biology theory

    • C.

      Psychological theory

    Correct Answer
    A. Science of evolution theory
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Science of evolution theory. This theory suggests that men are biologically primed to fight wars due to the large amount of testosterone they contain.

In the context of warfare, aggression and physical strength, which are associated with higher testosterone levels, may have provided an advantage in conflicts throughout human history. Therefore, this theory explains why men may be more inclined to engage in warfare.
