Which is an executive power of the Senate? a. appointing the President’s campaign staff

b.confirming the President’s major appointments

c.appointing the Speaker of the House

d. vetoing legislation that is approved by the House

Answers

B.

Speaker of the house is voted on by the House. The Senate has nothing to do with it. Campaign staff isn't controlled by anybody but the campaign manager (or theoretically the candidate), and definitely not the Senate. The Senate doesn't veto legislation, it votes on it. The Senate does, however, confirm the President's major appointments (Cabinet members and other secretaries).

Correct answer is B. confirming the President’s major appointments

The ____ phenomenon refers to the tendency to make judgments relative to a baseline established by our experience.

Answers

Latin terms "a priori" and "a posteriori" are the philosophical phrase that Immanuel Kant popularized and made possible their widespread use in his work "Critique of Pure Reason". Much earlier, before this popularization by Kant, these terms are used in Latin translations of Euclid's Elements, about 300 BCE.

These terms are used in relation to reasoning and conclusion, which distinguish "premise" conclusions from those that come after, conclusions based on sensory observations.

A Priori conclusions are independent of experience, for example 4 + 5 = 9, and result from pure reason. We do not need experience, but reason.

A posteriori conclusions come from experience and empirical evidence. They necessarily imply a general conclusion, for example, Civil War in America ended in 1865. If this is true we must conclude on the basis of an empirical fact that can not be recognized only by reason, and comes a posteriori.

So, "a posteriori" phenomenon is the answer.

Answer:

The adaptation-level phenomenon refers to the tendency to make judgments relative to a baseline established by our experience.

Explanation:

The adaptation-level phenomenon creates the level that we consider "normal" in our lives and the necessity of getting new and exciting experiences based on what we consider normal. The more we learn and change the more our line of "normality" changes and makes us adapt to our new environment.
