What are the elements of a state in the Montevideo Convention? Briefly explain each.
The elements of a state in the Montevideo Convention are permanent population, defined territory, government, and capacity to enter into relations with other states. A permanent population pertains to a population that is capable of propagating or multiplying itself. It envisions a population that is growing rather than stagnant. A defined territory pertains to the geographical limits or bounds of the state but does not necessarily envision a contiguous or unbroken territory. A government pertains to the set of leaders that governs public affairs and represents the population. Capacity to enter into relations with other states pertains to the state's capacity to enter into valid and binding agreements, conventions, or treaties with other states.

Give some reasons why the golden ratio is useful or relevant in graphic design.
The golden ratio is useful or important in graphic design for the following reasons: 1. It helps in balancing typographical design. The golden ratio can be used in finding the perfect font sizes or placement of text in heavily or purely typographical visual aids; 2. It helps in balancing image composition. Using the golden ratio makes sure that one doesn't put too much or too little image in a particular visual aid. It also helps in determining which areas to emphasize and which areas to keep minimal; and 3. It helps in coming up with a beautiful logo design. Designing a logo from scratch can be tricky, and using the golden ratio helps the designer strike the perfect balance between visual elements and textual elements in a logo design.
Thoroughly explain the transactional model of communication.
The transactional model communication views communication as the co-creation of meaning between communicators. On one end, a communicator encodes the message. On the other, a communicator decodes the message. Halfway between these communicators is the so-called co-creation of meaning, wherein the communicators collaborate to create sense out of the message, influenced by several factors, such as noise, psychological context, social context, physical context, cultural context, and relational context, among others. The transactional model of communication is often viewed by communication scholars as the most dynamic of all communication models.
