2 Answer

  • When Shi Huangdi took control of China, the name of the system of government that he put into place was Communism.
  • Answer:

    The correct answer is A. The name of the system of government that Shi Huangdi put into place was Legalism.

    Explanation:

    Legalism was a Chinese philosophical school opposed to Confucianism, that prevailed from the 5th century to the 2nd century BC. Its theories represented the interests of the landlords. They had a materialist vision of the world, and defended the Government through laws that opposed the rites of the Confucians.

    The political thought of the Legalism was utilitarian. Its main objective was to strengthen the power of the monarch. It considered that the virtuous man could not strengthen a kingdom very much if he acted contrary to what motivated it, and it also advocated not allowing other ideas that were not those of the monarch.
