This question is incomplete. Here is the complete question:

PART A: In paragraph 9 of “On the Education of Youth in America,” how does the quotation,

“The constitutions are republican, and the laws of education are monarchical” reinforce

Webster’s point of view on education?

A. It indicates that the type of education students are receiving poorly prepares  them for government service.

B. It asserts that schools should emphasize the merits of the U.S. political system  over those of other systems.

C. It emphasizes that the current education laws are contrary to the country’s form  of government.

D. It describes the educational opportunities shared by wealthy students and poor  students.

Answer:

The correct answer is option B. It asserts that schools should emphasize the merits of the U.S. political system  over those of other systems.

Explanation:

In “On the Education of Youth in America,” the monarchy is compared to the republican system. It is highlighted that in a republican government, education is the main thing and not partial as in the monarchies.

This should be disseminated mainly by schools and the media. Education will give each citizen knowledge about the laws that govern this system.

That is why the author claims that a system foreign to that of the country should not be taken into account, since it would be useless. Let's read the following quotes:

"Hence the absurdity of our copying the manners and adopting the institutions of Monarchies."

"The constitutions are republican, and the laws of education are monarchical."

Given this information we can say that the correct answer is option B.
