    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The Constitution of the United States outlines the job of the President of the United States. It is a foundational document that establishes the structure of the federal government and defines the powers and responsibilities of the President. It outlines the President's role as the head of the executive branch, including their authority to enforce laws, make appointments, negotiate treaties, and serve as the commander-in-chief of the military. The Constitution also sets forth the qualifications and term limits for the President, as well as the process for electing and removing them from office.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    The President can make a law without asking anyone else if they want it.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. True
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is incorrect. The President does not have the power to make laws unilaterally without the involvement of other branches of government. In a democratic system, the power to make laws is typically vested in the legislative branch, such as the Congress in the United States. The President can propose legislation, but it requires the approval and cooperation of the legislative body to become law. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

      Chief Executive of the Federal Government

    Correct Answer
    A. Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces
    Explanation
    The President, as the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, has the responsibility of overseeing and commanding the military. Attending the funeral of slain combatants in Fort Bragg is a duty that falls under this role, as it demonstrates the President's support and respect for the fallen soldiers and their families. This duty highlights the President's position as the highest-ranking military authority in the country.

  • 6. 

    True or False:The President can only make a treaty with another country if the Vice President approves.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The President does not need the approval of the Vice President to make a treaty with another country. The power to negotiate and enter into treaties is granted solely to the President by the Constitution. While the Vice President may be involved in the decision-making process and may provide advice or input, their approval is not required for the President to make a treaty. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    True or FalseThe President can approve a law, even if the Constitution says that it will be illegal.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The President cannot approve a law that is illegal according to the Constitution. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land and any law that contradicts it would be considered unconstitutional. The President's role is to enforce and uphold the Constitution, not to approve or pass laws that go against it. Therefore, the statement that the President can approve a law even if it is illegal according to the Constitution is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Are the State Governments in charge of what the President does?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    The state governments are not in charge of what the President does. The President is the head of the executive branch of the federal government and is responsible for making and implementing decisions at the national level. State governments, on the other hand, have their own separate powers and responsibilities within their respective states. While there may be some interaction and cooperation between the President and state governments, the President's actions and decisions are primarily within the jurisdiction of the federal government.
