Q- What is democracy? Give examples of non democratic countries.
Answer- Democracy is a form of government in which representatives are regularly elected after a specific time period. Elections are held to choose the representatives and native people or citizens are allowed to participate in the elections. Democracy improves the quality of decision making.
