My daughter asked him for clarification of the question and this is what he wrote:
"The way to approach all questions on the exam or any exam for that matter is to determine the extent to which the material from the class relates to the topic under consideration. You would then sift through the evidence that the class has in common (readings from both textbooks and class discussion) and determine how the evidence might lead to a conclusion to the question. In the first question that would be the extent the evidence supports the idea that the decisions of courts that we have examined have integrated the four factors that Carter and Burke suggest. Similarly, the last question asks whether the cases and materials we have covered in the class support the notion that law is inherently violent. There is no single correct answer to these questions merely different interpretations of the evidence that the class has covered. The objective is to demonstrate that you have read and understood the material in an appropriate manner for an advanced class.
