    Ancient Rome experienced three different types of government, except:

    • A.

      Monarchy

    • B.

      Democracy

    • C.

      Republic

    • D.

      Empire

    Correct Answer
    B. Democracy
    Explanation
    Ancient Rome did not experience a democracy as one of its forms of government. Instead, it went through a monarchy, a republic, and an empire. In a monarchy, power is held by a single ruler, typically a king or queen. The Roman Republic was characterized by a system of elected officials and a Senate, where power was shared among different branches. The Roman Empire marked the transition from a republic to an autocratic rule, with emperors holding supreme power. However, democracy, where power is vested in the people, was not one of the government systems practiced in ancient Rome.
