C) structural functionalism D) the conflict perspective
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) symbolic interactionism

2. Micro.

Macro theories focus on the society as a whole and aim at establishing the general characteristics of the society. It is basically looking at the society as a whole and looking at a bigger picture. It aims to answer three basic questions:

1) What holds the societies together?

2) What are the sources of conflict in a society?

3) How do societies change?

There are two branches of macro-sociological theories: consensus and conflict, with the main representative being functionalist and marxist respectively.

 

Micro theories on the other hand, focus on the individuals who make up the society unlike macro theory which looks at the society as a whole. Micro theories are small scale. Consider it a magnifying glass, when you look through it, you 'zoom' in to the society and see the individuals who have made up that particular society.

 

Symbolic interactionism is the sociological perspective which is most closely linked to microsociology.

Q:

What does the judicial branch do?

Answer

The United States government has 3 branches, which all serve an important role in running the government and keeping our system of laws in place.


 


1. The legislative branch


2. The executive branch 


3. The judicial branch


 


The legislative branch makes the laws while the executive branch enforces these laws. 


The judicial branch is a system of courts that applies the laws.


 


Both the federal government and each of the 5 states have individual judicial branches which all serve this purpose.


 


For example :: 


If the federal government were like a basketball game, the judicial branch is much like the referee that helps settle disputes. The executive branch and the legislative branch are often like the players in the game trying to score points against each other, and the judicial branch is there to clarify the rules and make sure each side is acting fairly.
