A major difference between social insurance and public assistance is that the:

A) former is regarded as an earned right while the latter is public charity.
B) latter is regarded as an earned right while the former is public charity.
C) latter is financed through earmarked payroll taxes and the former is financed by general tax revenues.
D) former are state and local programs while the latter are Federal programs.

What is confusing me is the latter and former part of the answers because in my reading it did not state is like this some I do not know what it means.
