Question

The main attributes of a state are

Options

A) government, the police and the armed forces

B) population, territory, government and sovereignty

C) federal state and local governments

D) the press, the legislature, the executive and the judiciary


The correct answer is B.

Explanation:

B is the correct answer. Other options may look alike. However for a state to be recognized it must have option B’s attributes. For instance option A only explained the presence of a government, police, army , navy and air force but no population, no sovereignty and no territory. So that’s incomplete. Option C only explain two tiers of government. These are not enough adjectives to describe a state. Option D is equally wrong because: It had no government, sovereignty, population and territory.
