This Branch administers and carries out the laws passed by the Legislative Branch.

It is headed by the President. The executive branch basically makes sure the laws that the Legislative branch makes are followed. In other words, they carry out laws made by the Legislative branch. Except for Congress and the Federal Courts, practically ever activity of federal government is carried out by the executive branch.
