What are some examples of these United States government powers?

QUESTION
What are some examples of these United States government powers?
I need one example of…
1. an expressed power
2. an implied power
3. a concurrent power
4. one reserved power

Thanks so much to anyone who answers this then I’ll be done with my essay.

ANSWER
Expressed powers are those specifically listed in the Constitution: Congress’ power to declare war

Implied powers are those that can be said to have come from clauses in the Constitution: federal government’s power to create a national bank

Concurrent powers are those that the federal and state governments share: right to tax

Reserved powers are those only the state may wield: police powers i.e. protection of heath, safety, welfare, morals, etc.

Good luck with your essay, and check out the Constitution, especially Section I, for more info on powers of the government. It’s an excellent resource.
