Question:

Which statement best summarizes the Sixth Amendment?

A The Sixth Amendment lists rights of persons accused of a crime.
Explaination

The Sixth Amendment does list rights of persons accused of a crime. Answer (The Sixth Amendment lists all of the rights of persons accused of a crime) is virtually the same except the word all has been added. Be sure to read carefully, and don’t jump to conclusions! The Sixth Amendment does not have all of the rights of persons accused of a crime; other rights of the accused are in the Fifth and Eighth Amendments. Answer (The Sixth Amendment is part of the Bill of Rights) is a correct statement but not a summary of the amendment. Answer (The Sixth Amendment lists various rights of citizens) is not as descriptive nor as specific as the correct answer, which better summarizes the amendment
