Why did the Second Continental Congress establish a weak central government under the Articles of Confederation? A) to model the government after that of Great Britain B) to provide the independent states with unlimited power C) to increase the taxation powers of the central government D) to prevent abuse of power and tyranny by the central government
the Answer is D, for sure
B) to provide the independent states with unlimited power I wouldn't have said unlimited power but they wanted most of the power to rest with the states. Hope this helps.
