Refers to the following passage from Article I of the U.S. Constitution:
Section 1: All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.
Section 2: The House of Representatives shall be composed of members chosen every second year by the people of the several States ….
Section 3: The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each state, chosen by the legislature thereof for six years ….
Which statement is not consistent with Article I of the U.S. Constitution?

A Representatives and senators are to be chosen by the people of each state.

According to the Constitution, senators were to be chosen by the state legislatures, not the people of each state. This was changed in 1913 with the passage of the Sixteenth Amendment. All the other choices correctly restate provisions of Article I of the U.S. Constitution.
