    Which of the following is not neccesarily the feature of a Nation?

    • A.

      Government

    • B.

      Population

    • C.

      Sovereignty

    • D.

      Territory

    Correct Answer
    C. Sovereignty
    Explanation
    Sovereignty is not necessarily a feature of a nation because there are non-sovereign nations that exist. Sovereignty refers to the supreme authority of a state to govern itself without interference from external sources. While most nations possess sovereignty, there are instances where nations may have limited or no sovereignty, such as in the case of dependent territories or regions under occupation. Therefore, sovereignty is not an essential or universal feature of a nation.

Therefore, the keyword "Right" accurately captures the essence of authority as it emphasizes the legitimacy and entitlement associated with exercising power and control.

    The most appropriate form of government for a homogenous society is a:

    • A.

      Unitary System

    • B.

      One-party system

    • C.

      Totalitarian system

    • D.

      Socialist system

    Correct Answer
    A. Unitary System
    Explanation
    A unitary system of government is the most appropriate form for a homogenous society because it centralizes power and decision-making in a single governing body. In a homogenous society where there is a high degree of cultural, linguistic, and ethnic similarity among the population, a unitary system ensures that policies and laws are implemented uniformly across the entire country. This form of government promotes national unity and cohesion, as it avoids potential conflicts and divisions that may arise from regional or ethnic autonomy. Additionally, a unitary system allows for efficient governance and effective implementation of policies, as power is not fragmented among multiple governing bodies.

This practice involves redrawing district lines to favor a particular political party or group. By strategically dividing and grouping voters, politicians can manipulate the outcome of elections and ensure their party's dominance. Gerrymandering is often criticized for undermining the principles of fair representation and democracy, as it allows politicians to choose their voters rather than the other way around.

    • A.

      Prime minister

    • B.

      Cabinet minister

    • C.

      President

    • D.

      Chief Judge

    Correct Answer
    C. President
    Explanation
    The correct answer is President because impeachment is the process of removing a high-ranking government official from office. The President is the highest-ranking government official in many countries, including the United States, and can be impeached if they are found to have committed "high crimes and misdemeanors." Impeachment does not apply to the position of Prime Minister or Cabinet Minister, as they are typically removed through other political processes. The Chief Judge may also be subject to impeachment in some countries, but it is not as common as it is for the President.
