Hi Powerscore staff,
I've done this RC section a few times, and understand every question but this one.
Here's my thought process. IF Parliament makes a commitment to become a member of an international body, that means that they are transferring some sovereignty to an international entity.
This could mean two things.
1. The Parliament cannot transfer sovereignty and can leave at any time.
2. If the international body is indeed sovereign, which we do not know, then it could be viewed as a similar to the Glorious Revolution. I thought about this in the context of the Republic of Texas entering the USA, or France entering the European Coal and Steel Community. How do we know that sovereignty wasn't transferred?
I have read the above and understand the reasoning on a logical level. But it also seems like there is another possibility--joining a multinational organization can be the start of a new constitutional arrangement--just as the Brits undergoing Brexit. How do we discount this possibility to get to the correct answer?
When I actually went to answer this question, I thought ash sure, maybe Parliament still has the legal authority to end this arrangement. But we do not know that. So, for this MBT (inferred) question type, we need to be certain!
