    "help" means we should do ALL the work for you?

    1) is obvious. You're missing a word in the Q. "that closely (blank) a city's population

    2) do a little research. look up the 4 possibles.

    3) google "The earliest form of the city commission government in the United States began in "

    4) You're too lazy to look up meaning of "home rule"?

    5) google "role of a county attorney in Texas"

    6) well, it cannot possibly be A or D. Gee, I wonder what google might say?
