The three branches of our government each play crucial roles in the U.S. national government. Each branch has specific power, duties, and responsibilities that are the most apparent features of our system of separate powers. Nevertheless, each branch has been critiqued for having definite strengths and weaknesses that become obvious in certain situations. Analyzing these strengths and weaknesses will enable you to evaluate and recommend ways to enhance and correct these fundamental assets and deficiencies of the branches of our national government.

Focusing on the one branch of government you have selected, develop four paragraphs that explain one strength and one weakness of the branch of government, as well as options to maintain the strength and correct the weakness of the branch you have selected.
