your answers. Do not use more than two direct quotations. And do not use reading
materials that were not assigned in the class.
Answers should be one to two pages long (double space, 12-point font and 1-inch
margins) and include a separate title page and bibliography. The paper cannot exceed
two pages (this does not include the title page and bibliography). Citations and
referencing should use standard formats (e.g. MLA or APA).1 Please submit only in MS

Your answers must be written in a standard essay format consisting of a short

The final is worth 100 points. 10 points will be deducted for papers turned in within 24
hours after the deadline. Essays will not be accepted more than 24 hours after the
deadline. Submit your papers at least two hours before the official deadline. This will
help prevent last minute glitches.
Option 1: Politically Contentious Cities
This quarter has focused on the qualities that make cities unique environments.
While these environments are riven by inequalities and problems, they also
facilitate the formation of contentious political groups seeking equality.
1. What are the specific economic factors (i.e. jobs, inequalities, housing, etc.) that
