Define the different types of governments 
(i.e., democracy, autocracy, oligarchy,

Democracy 
In a democracy, the government is elected by 
the people. Everyone who is eligible to vote 
has a chance to have their say over who runs 
the country. It is distinct from governments 
controlled by a particular social class or group 
(aristocracy; oligarchy) or by a single person 
(despotism; dictatorship; monarchy).  
A democracy is determined either directly or 
through elected representatives.
