  1. [Which of the following could be simplified or removed without changing the result?]

  4. So here I've written a function in JavaScript called Plato's Republic.
  5. It's a function of 2 variables: A and B.
  6. A gets A times 1, B gets B + 0, A gets A + B,

  9. Which of them can be simplified or removed
  10. without changing the result?
