The following exam is an open book exam. You are directed to answer each of the questions presented fully, taking care to answer each part of the question.

This is an unlimited time, unlimited entry exam. If you use information directly from a source, including the book, make sure to provide a citation. For example, from Lippman, this would be (Lippman, 2016). If you quote, you must add the page number to the parenthetical citation. I am looking for at least one complete paragraph for each question and well written work.
