Answers

Selecting all that apply, and adding some explanation:

3. A and C

The president's amnesty power pardons those who have violated the law. 

The president's commutation power reduces the length of a sentences. 

Article II, Section 2 of the US Constitution affirms that the President "shall have Power to Grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States." Within that authority, he can grant clemency in more than one way. A reprieve suspends the carrying out of a criminal sentence to allow the offender to seek ways to have the penalty reduced. A commutation of a sentence leaves the conviction in place but lessens the penalty (such as shortening a prison sentence). Or the President can grant a full pardon of offenses.

4. A & D

He or she is an elected representative of the American people. 

The constitution makes the president the chief administrator of the federal government.

The President (along with Vice-President) is elected by voting by all citizens, whereas other office holders in the federal government were elected on a district by district or state by state basis.

The Constitution asserts (in Article II, Section 1): "The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America." The role of chief executive means that he or she holds the primary administrative role in the federal government. We often refer to the staff of the White House as the current "administration," such as the Trump administration (in reference to the current president).

5. A & B

The national security council, which advises the president on national security matters.

The office of the vice president, which helps the vice president perform his or her duties.

A "line agency" is one that directly carries out the core functions of an organization or administration. By contrast, a "staff agency" is one that supports or aids an organization or administration in one of a variety of ways. Both the National Security Council and the Vice-President are involved directly in advancing the primary governing work of the President. The other examples given would be staff agencies, providing other types of support.

Note: I found this question online and saw that the italicized words are "speculate", "strenuous", "exaggerate", and "vicinity".

The sentence that best uses a synonym as a context clue to clarify the meaning of the word is option D. I know I left my laptop in the vicinity of the playing field, which is near the bleachers.

Explanation:

Options A through C do not present any context clues to clarify the meaning of the italicized words. The only possible option left is D, in which we have the word "vicinity". "Vicinity" means the area near or around something. In the sentence, we have the very synonym of "vicinity" being used as a context clue for its meaning when the speaker says, "which is near the bleachers." Therefore, even if the reader does not know what "vicinity" means, he can infer the meaning through the context clue.

Identify the sentence pair that maintains a consistent point of view.  

B. We​ can't possibly solve the​ world's problems. We can only try to solve our own problems.

The subject is used consistently in this pair: it's we in both sentences. The possessive pronoun is also used consistently (our).

The choice of pronouns is inconsistent in A, C, and D:

A - you, one, your.

C - I, one, we.

D - you, we.

I don't undertstand the question, can you clarify

Explanation:

D.I know I left my laptop in the vicinity of the playing field, which is near the bleachers. (word is vicinity)

Explanation:

Vecinity means nearby . This word is used to mean location , so the speaker left his laptop somehwere in a playing field. This idea can be inferred from this context clue near , which is a synonymous expression of vecinity. Near can be used in the place of vecinity: " I know I left my laptop near the playing field,"

B) we cant possibly solve the worlds problem. we can only try to solve our own problems

ihope it will help u dear ♡

B - We can't possibly solve the world's problems. We can only try to solve our own problems. This is consistent in first person POV (We/We/our)

option A is second person POV (you) and third (one)

option C is first person (I) and thrid (one)

Option D is second person (you) and first (we, our)

1st person sorry if I'm wrong I'm confused
