14. Read this quote from Alexander Hamilton.

The interpretation of the laws is proper and peculiar province of the courts. A constitution is, in fact, and must be regarded by the judges as a fundamental law.... If there should happen to be an irreconcilable variance between the two ... the Constitution ought to be preferred to the statue.... -Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist No. 78

Hamilton's statement is fundamental to which concept?

a- judicial review *****
b- federalism
c- limited government
d- popular sovereignty

15. Read this excerpt from the textbook.

During the years the Articles of Confederation were in force (1781-1789), there were mo national courts and no national judiciary. The laws of the United States were interpreted and applied as each State saw fit, and sometimes not at all. Disputes between States and between persons who lived indifferent States were decided, if at all, by the courts in one of the States involved. Often, decisions by the courts in one State were ignored by the courts in the other States.

This excerpt from the textbook explains why

a- delegates to the Constitution Convention wanted checks and balances among the branches of government
b- the Framers of the Articles of confederation felt there was no need for a national judiciary
c- the Framers of the Constitution thought it was important to have a national judiciary ****
d- many members of Congress felt there was no need for a strong federal government.
