Q 55.. examples of stratification-- the correct answer acc to me shd be CULTURAL ELITES.. because while sex is the basis of differentiation, gender is a concious basis of stratification constructed by society.. further, the feminist movements all around the world seek to abolish stratification based on gender criterion..
