These questions in Sociology are very fundamental in nature. The four types of groups are the most basic groups that we can find around us in the society. Role strain and role constraint speak about the duties and responsibilities of the roles of people in society or in a group. The most important characteristics of the bureaucracies are explained. The difference between status and role are explained with examples. Questions about types of crime like consensus crime, conflict crime, occupational crime, etc are also answered in this solution. A short theory about Darwin and Moths is also answered.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
