Why did an enumerated power of the judicial branch, in combination with the opinion in Marbury v. Madison, lead some to question the authority of the Supreme Court?

a)The power to prosecute treason established by the Constitution conflicted with the Supreme Court's establishment of judicial review in the case.

b)The even number of justices on the Supreme Court as listed in the Constitution created a situation in which judicial review could lead to a tied court.

c)The long tenure granted the justices of the Supreme Court in the Constitution, combined with judicial review, made it difficult for other branches to check the judiciary's power.

d)The jurisdiction set forth for the Supreme Court by the Constitution was expanded by the case, leaving the judiciary as a significantly more powerful branch of government than the others.
