THE SPACE. (For example: Read all the examples first so when you go back and read the Constitution, you will be able to connect the example to the passage in the Constitution. I will do the first one for you. So, you read Article II, Section 1 and note that the fifth paragraph corresponds to example e. So for e) you put number 1 next to it. You then go to the next selection, read the passage in the Constitution, and see which examples corresponds to that passage.
Some answers have only one option while others have two options. For example, the first amendment examples can be answered with #6 or #7. You will have two first amendment examples and will either select 6 or 7 for those answers. Same thing applies to amendment five (10 and 11) and amendment 6 (12 and 13). I should see a Number next to the small case letters (a,b,c, … not a letter, in the blank.
