Correct Answer : America
Question Asked : SSC CGL Tier-I (CBE) Exam 2016
Explanation: The Constitution of the United States of America, adopted in 1788, provides the world’s first formal blueprint for a modem democracy. It provided for an elected government and protected civil rights and liberties for some. It led to representative democracy that is considered as an essential ingredient of any democracy. The achievement of white male suffrage in the early 19th century has earned the United States the title of “world’s first democracy”. It marked the first time that a large proportion of a national population could elect its representatives.
