Question 20 of 40 Parallel cousins are children of siblings of the same sex. Your Answer: Explanation Children of the father’s brothers or the mother’s sisters are called parallel cousins. Question 21 of 40 Matrilineal descent is defined as descent through the mother. Your Answer: Explanation This does not necessarily or even usually imply that a matrilineal group is matriarchal, but only that a person traces membership in the group through female links. A matriarchal group is one in which the head of the household is the mother or a female (as opposed to a patriarchal group, headed by the father or male). Question 22 of 40 The defining feature of a patrilineal descent system is that membership in a social group is determined by descent through the father . Your Answer: Explanation A patrilineal descent group, such as the Greek phratry or the Roman gens, thus includes a person's father, father's father, father's father's father, and so on. Question 23 of 40 Patterns of association is basically the observation of who interacts with whom and in what ways. Typically in Western society, people interact with people of the same class in an informal, friendly manner. Your Answer: Explanation Likewise, people interact with people of a differential class in a more awkward and thus, more structured, socially prescribed way. For example, the interactions between a corporate executive and a janitor in the same building.

Question 24 of 40 Most cultures have some kind of non-kin based systems in addition to kin groups, usually called institutions or network of agreements. Your Answer: Question 25 of 40 Membership by Age is a linguistic term to classify people according to Age or position in life cycle. Most cultures have this feature. E.g. teenagers, Generation X, Senior citizens. Your Answer: Explanation It represents a stage recognized by culture and implies clear roles with rights and obligations. People pass from one grade to another via important rituals like Rites of Passage. Question 26 of 40 Status is a set of rights and obligations that are inherent in social position. Your Answer: Explanation On the other hand, a contract is a set of rights and obligations assumed voluntarily by parties to the agreement or a principle for creating a bond between two or more roles, with overtly stated obligations and rights. Question 27 of 40 A Free Contract involves a casual-minimal relationship, often short term in nature. Your Answer: Explanation This is in contrast to a Social Contract--a public contract where people agree to band together for some purpose--often highly structured. Question 28 of 40 The state is a formal organization of roles in which legal and military authority is vested and in which authority is considered by its members to be its primary function.
