Hello Mike

Can you please explain the sentence ' the fact that certain rights are listed in the Constitution shall be construed to imply that other rights of the people are denied'
My understanding of this amendment is that only listed rights in the constitution are permitted to citizens while those not listed are denied.


first of all you have misconstrued the line it saysthe fact that certain rights are listed in the Constitution shall not be construed to imply that other rights of the people are denied.

it means that the fact that some rights are listed doesn't means that others which are not listed are denied.

1) The author cites the scholars referring to "voting rights of women or minorities" in order to - the relevant text is in the last paragraph
(A) cite unquestionably justified Ninth Amendment rights by the reference the author seeks to make a point that some new rights can in fact evolve
(B) demonstrate how changing priorities can alter perspectives on fundamental human rights matches the purpose
(C) argue for the modern extension of Natural Rights Theory
(D) refute the traditionalist interpretation of the Ninth Amendment by the example, the author does not seek to refute, but to illustrate that some new rights can be created
(E) champion the rights of all citizens in the democratic process

2) Constitutional scholars of both the traditionalist and liberal views would agree that "Ninth Amendment rights"
(A) accommodate shifts in cultural values with respect to issues affecting human rights the traditionalist may not likely to agree with this
(B) cannot serve as the basis of legal decisions
(C) are directly reflected in our understanding of who can and can’t vote if anything, too narrow
(D) are not stated explicitly in the Bill of Rights correct
(E) extend the idea of Natural Rights Theory the scholars don't provide their views about the theory

3) According to the passage, what would the Ninth Amendment imply about a right to "a trial by jury", guaranteed in the Seventh Amendment of the US Constitution?
(A) The Ninth Amendment would provide direct support for this right. the 9th Amendment deals with a completely different category of rights, and thus this cannot be inferred
(B) The Ninth Amendment would not support this right directly, but would support all the logistics that would allow citizens to exercise this right. the 9th Amendment deals with a completely different category of rights
(C) The Ninth Amendment would apply to trials that fall outside the jurisdiction of Federal Courts. the passage doesn't give any information about trials
(D) The Ninth Amendment would apply to all trials that do not involve Constitutional Law
(E) The Ninth Amendment is irrelevant to any right mentioned explicitly in the Bill of Rights. the 9th Amendment talks about rights that are not listed in the BoR, while the other Amendments establish explicit rights

4) In the view of James Madison and the other Founding Fathers, the Ninth Amendment limits the power of the central Federal government by - the relevant text: "Toward this end, James Madison and others produced the Ninth Amendment, which states: the fact that certain rights are listed in the Constitution shall not be construed to imply that other rights of the people are denied."
(A) preventing constitutionally listed rights from being viewed as exhaustive correct
(B) giving the citizens rights in every area not explicitly addressed by the law the government may have interpreted in limited manner - the opposite that we need
(C) codifying a vast universe of federally enforceable rights again, the government may have wanted a limited scope of rights
(D) guaranteeing, in the text of US Constitution, all rights held by Natural Rights Theory the same as in C
(E) ensuring all citizens are able to vote and, thus, choose the democratic leaders too specific and doesn't catch the essence of the relevant text

5) The primary purpose of the passage is to - first the author provides a short historical context that describes how the Bill of Rights have come to being. Then, the author mentions an issue related to the 9th Amendment. After that, the author provides two opposing views that describe whether the Amendment can or cannot expand the scope of rights
(A) clarify the most proper interpretation of an amendment
(B) argue for a broader perspective on human rights and their legal protection
(C) contrast historical perspectives of an amendment to its modern legal reading
(D) explain the motivation for an amendment and the ambiguity this amendment presents correct
(E) demonstrate how the Founding Fathers’ intentions have been distorted by subsequent legal proceedings.

Hey..

Reading Comprehension passages on the GMAT are usually this long - I don't understand why it is tagged as a short passage.

Nevertheless, one thing that you need to understand is that it is sufficient to read 20% of the passage to answer 80% of the questions on the RC.

You can watch the video below to understand what to read and what not.

I dont understand how does " preventing constitutionally listed rights from being viewed as exhaustive" - LIMIT the power of govt.??
I mean it was more like the thinkers were concerned that the citizens may think that whatever is explicitly stated is the only law and other rights are not granted. HOW DOES THIS LIMIT THE POWER OF GOVT.?
