Part Three is made up of a choice of short answer questions. This study guide will review concepts and questions that will be explicitly used in Part Two and Three. All answers will be written on the midterm exam itself. Please pay attention to what each question is worth in order to gauge how many points you will need to achieve full marks for any answer. Also, remember that you are tested on what you have learned in THIS COURSE only. Part I: Multiple Choice (5 questions, worth 1 mark each, 5 marks total) Part II: Define and Significance (4 terms worth 5 marks each, 20 marks total) You will be asked to define a termconcept or contrast two terms and demonstrate why it is significant in the study of Canadas political institutions.
