No. The Constitution mandated Congress create the Supreme Court and empowered them to create whatever lower courts they deemed necessary, but the Constitution did not actually establishthe federal court system. Congress began that process with the Judiciary Act of 1789.

No, the US Constitution exclusively addressed the federal courts, and only mandated creation of the Supreme Court. Article III established jurisdiction for federal courts in general, but left the details to Congress.

The States created their own judicial systems.

The expected answer is: US Supreme Court (or Supreme Court of the United States)

The US Supreme Court is the only court specifically mandated (required) by the Constitution. Article III directed Congress to create the Supreme Court, which they did with the Judiciary Act of 1789; the Constitution itself did not establish the Supreme Court. This is a common misunderstanding.
