Question description

In American society, class systems, of which there are five, are social rankings based largely on economic position. In America, unlike India, one can transcend class through economic or social success.

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length.

Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other

scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.
