The answer is probably supposed to be "because the Articles of Confederation didn't include a judicial branch or federal court system." Although this is true, the Articles of Confederation did provide a means of resolving disputes between states. Under Article 9, this authority was granted to Congress, which was instructed to select a panel of judges to help make a fair decision.

The most pressing was likely paying for the operations of the new government, there being no Federal power of taxation granted by the Articles of Confederation.

The primary points made by the Articles of Confederation worked on a formula to make strong states and a weak central government. The granted one vote per state and proposed that apportionment of taxes should be done according to the population among other things.

The United States was originally founded as a Confederation, under the Articles of Confederation.The Confederation granted ultimate sovereignty to the states, whereas the federal government was very weak, leading the states into constant turmoil and, occasionally, war.Realizing the problem, Congress, which at this time was the only government entity, abolished the Articles of Confederation and created the United States Constitution.The United States Constitution establishes the United States as a Federal Republic and is still the legal document of today.

The most significant power not given to the Federal government under the Articles of Confederation was the ability to tax. The central government therefore had to way to raise money for defense or important internal projects.

Congress itself created and appointed executives, judges, and military officers. It also had the power to make war and peace, conduct foreign affairs, and borrow and print money. But Congress could not collect taxes or enforce laws drectly; it had to rely on the states to provide money and enforce its laws.

The Articles of Confederation failed as a form of government for America partly because they granted very few powers to the government, and on top of this they were very difficult to amend. Changing anything about the Articles would require a unanimous vote from all thirteen states.
