Local Government Quizzes & Trivia

Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    All states have their own Consitutions. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement is true because all states in a country typically have their own individual constitutions. These constitutions outline the framework and principles by which the state is governed, including the powers and limitations of the government, the rights and responsibilities of the citizens, and the structure of the state's institutions. Having their own constitutions allows states to have some degree of autonomy and the ability to tailor their governance to their specific needs and priorities.

    Correct Answer

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    The head of the Executive Branch at the state level is..

    • A.

      Lt. Governor

    • B.

      Attorney General

    • C.

      Law Makers

    • D.

      Governor

    Correct Answer
    D. Governor
    Explanation
    The head of the Executive Branch at the state level is the Governor. The Governor is responsible for implementing and enforcing state laws, overseeing the state budget, appointing officials, and representing the state at the national level. The Lt. Governor is the second-highest executive officer, but the Governor holds the highest position and has the ultimate authority in the state's executive branch. The Attorney General is the top legal officer in the state, responsible for providing legal advice and representing the state in legal matters, but they do not hold the highest position in the executive branch. Lawmakers, on the other hand, are part of the legislative branch and are responsible for making laws, not for leading the executive branch.

    Bicameral means 2 Houses

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement "Bicameral means 2 Houses" is true. Bicameral refers to a legislative body that is divided into two separate chambers or houses. This system is commonly seen in countries like the United States, where there is a House of Representatives and a Senate. Each chamber has its own set of responsibilities and powers, providing a system of checks and balances. The term "bicameral" is derived from the Latin words "bi" meaning two and "camera" meaning chamber. Therefore, the correct answer is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The difference between reserved and concurrent powers 

    • A.

      Reserved are used at both state and federal

    • B.

      Concurrent are used at both state and federal

    • C.

      They are the same

    • D.

      Reserved is for state and concurrent is for both

    Correct Answer
    D. Reserved is for state and concurrent is for both
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that reserved powers are for the state, while concurrent powers are for both the state and federal government. Reserved powers are those powers that are not specifically granted to the federal government by the Constitution and are therefore reserved for the states. Concurrent powers, on the other hand, are powers that are shared by both the state and federal government, such as the power to tax and the power to establish courts.

    State constitutions are very similar to the United States Constitution in structure and rights provided

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    State constitutions are indeed very similar to the United States Constitution in structure and the rights they provide. Just like the U.S. Constitution, state constitutions establish the framework for their respective state governments and outline the rights and freedoms of their citizens. While there may be some variations in specific provisions, overall, state constitutions mirror the structure and principles of the U.S. Constitution. Therefore, the statement is true.
