That all depends on what BRAND of carburetor you are referring to.
For the most part, to answer your question with the kind of info I think you are needing, the general components and air and fuel circuits are GENERALLY the same in all carbs. Sizes, styles and effectiveness for each application vary GREATLY. Racing carbs, for one example, do not normally have any choke mechanisms on them, whether they are deleted during manufacture or removed during preparation for use as a race carb.

Why are choke removed to make it a racing carb how does it make it go faster and why do you have to take the choke out couldn't you just enlarge the jets.

the choke on a racing carb is just taking up space. it is easy to remove a choke mechanism. you can get a little bit more air into the carb by removing it.
