in 45 min

Expert:  Family Physician replied 9 months ago.
Ok..... I'll be as quick as possible:

For question 1 - you answered DEMOCRACY - Democracy is a form of government where all individuals have an equal voice.

Here is the definition of oligarchy - controlled by a SMALL GROUP of people

Customer: replied 9 months ago.


Thanks

Expert:  Family Physician replied 9 months ago.
Question 2 - remember this is a sociology course/test - psychology would be more involved with the personal issues of a divorce - sociology (and C. Wright Mills) is more interested in the high number of divorces (I believe around 50% of marriages) - i.e. what is it about the structure of marriage that causes divorce.
Customer: replied 9 months ago.


That makes more sense

Expert:  Family Physician replied 9 months ago.
Question #3
Making all research notes available for public scrutiny would expose subjects personal data - breaching their confidentiality. This is not part of any code of ethics.

Question #7
In sociological research, functional prerequisites are the basic needs (food, shelter, clothing, and money) that an individual requires to live above the poverty line.
ROLE CONFLICT - being pulled in different directions would seem more appropriate
Customer: replied 9 months ago.


Now that makes sense

Expert:  Family Physician replied 9 months ago.

For #10 - I believe that retreatism is your best answer

For #11 - Anomie

 

Customer: replied 9 months ago.


That's what I had originally thought

Customer: replied 9 months ago.

Ok

Expert:  Family Physician replied 9 months ago.
13 - you didn't answer - Feminists believe that gender inequality is a driving force behind most social issues

How are we doing on time?

Culture shock is a common problems when people travel - having experienced in myself when I traveled to England, Europe and 3rd world countries.
Customer: replied 9 months ago.

Ok yeah that's what they call that experience

Expert:  Family Physician replied 9 months ago.
Short answer#1
Ethnocentricity is the view that you (or your culture) is the center of the universe so to speak. An example is the belief that your nation, culture or belief system is ordained by God - and therefore superior to others.

You may want to explain the conflict between the USA and many Arab nations both of which have large segments of their population that believe that their way of life is based on God's law and therefore superior or not open to question.

UNDERSTAND, you should not copy and paste any essay answer, since you could be accused of plagiarism (which is most courses will result in a "F")
