This paragraph is missing a topic sentence. Which sentence would best serve this purpose?
The first branch of government outlined in the Constitution is the legislative branch. Article One explains that the legislative branch, Congress, will make the laws for the country. The second branch is the executive branch, which includes the President, Vice President, and executive offices such as the State Department and the Treasury Department. They are responsible for carrying out the laws Congress makes. The third branch of the government is the federal court system, the judicial branch. This includes the Supreme Court. Each branch has its powers and responsibilities outlined, and the government is balanced because no branch is considered more important than another.
