Welcome to the Paragraph based question of chapter-2 of Democratic Politics II

In this paragraph we would be giving you a paragraph of chapter- 2.

Let’s start it.

Read the following mentioned paragraph and answer the below given question carefully.

Federalism is a system of government in which the power is divided between a central authority and the constituent units of the country. Usually, a federation has two levels of government. One is for the entire country that is usually responsible for a few subjects of common national interest. The others are governnments at the level of provinces or states that look after much independent of the day-to-day administering of their state. Both these levels of governments enjoy their power independent of the other. In this sense federations are constructed with unitary governments. Under, the unitary system, either there is only one level of government or the sub-units are subordinate to the central government. The central government can pass on orders to the provincial or the local government. But in federal system, the central government cannot order the state government to do something. State government has powers of its own for which it is not answerable to the central government. Both these governments are separately answerable to the people of the nation.
