Which statement best represents an economic weakness of the national government under the articles of confederation?A. The national Government was unable to collect taxes. B. National and state taxes combined were too high for most services to pay. C. Congress set different tax rates for each state, leading to conflict. D. State refused to collect taxes on behalf of the national government
Answer: A. The national Government was unable to collect taxes.
The Articles of Confederation (1781) was characterized for granting full independence to the states at the expense of a weak central government.
Under this Constitution, the national government consisted of a Congress who had few powers like the power to declare war, appoint military officers, sign treaties, make alliances, appoint foreign ambassadors and manage relations with Indians tribes. However, it was not authorized to draft soldiers in case of war and it was unable to collect taxes: it could only raise money by asking the states for funds (which had the option to reject the request), by borrowing from foreign governments, or selling western lands.
b. national and state taxes combined were too high for most services to pay.

What do you know about the Sahara Desert
Here are some facts about the Sahara;
-it's the largest hot desert, but not the largest desert in the world: Arctic and Antrarctica are bigger
-It's about as big as the US
- there are some green areas or "oasis" on them and even a city: M'zab is located in one such oases.
The largest desert in the world, the Sahara covers an area slightly smaller than the United States. Its name comes from the English translation of the Arabic word for desert. To its north lies the Mediterranean Sea and to the south lies the savanna, which gives way to the Congo River Basin.
The first inhabitants of the Sahara region lived along the Nile River and were generally cattle herders. Cities were established as time progressed. The Phoenicians eventually set up a number of trading posts on the northern edge of the desert along the shores of the Mediterranean. These port cities remained the major means of trading until the arrival of the camel from Saudi Arabia. The use of camels to transport goods quickly affected the Saharan trade. Camels can go two weeks without water and four weeks without food, making them the ideal mode of transportation through desert regions. Large groups of camels would be fattened up and then sent in caravans of more than a thousand to faraway lands in the west, such as Ghana and Mali. Later, with the advent of sailing vessels that could travel around the continent, camel caravans took on less importance.
