Theocracy and communism are the two types of oligarchies listed here, hence choice D. Essentially, an oligarchy is a situation where a certain group of people rules over the rest that is a majority.  There are five government types as outlined by the Greek philosopher Plato: timocracy, democracy, aristocracy, tyranny and oligarchy. With an oligarchy set up, citizen participation is minimized and can easily become an autocracy because the situation has the potential of going by nepotism owing to the unitary government model.
