    Marx was involved with the future Soviet Union, so he's definitely not an option.

    I personally believe it to be the Pluralist Theory, since Weber was a German philosopher involved with German politics, not American. I don't know about Wright.

    The other choices don't make sense to me. Marx, a communist at heart, would have disagreed with the path the United States currently goes along, and Weber is a German philosopher who had no involvement with theories of power regarding the United States. The Pluralist theory mentions American specifically and has relevance to power, so that's why I believe it to be the right choice.
