Answer: D. Power is held by bureaucrats and administrators.
According to Max Weber, power is the ability of a person to exercise his/her will over that of others. Max Weber believed that real power comes with the achievement of certain goals even when other people oppose those goals. Every society today is built on some form of power and this power resides typically within the government. Some governments however exercise this power with some kind of force which makes it illegitimate. In modern society, the power described by Max Weber is often exercised by administrators and bureaucrats. Power exists in social groups, personal relationships, and in institutions like the government.
