The correct answer to this question is C, Lincoln. Not only is it the capital of Nebraska, but Lincoln is also a county seat of Lancaster county. In 2018, it had a population of over 287,400 people, making it the second most populated city in Nebraska. Lincoln is approximately 94.2 square miles.

When the city was originally founded in 1856, its name was Lancaster. In 1867, the name changed to Lincoln and was named after President Abraham Lincoln. The city of Lincoln has a lot to do for both locals and visitors. It houses the Nebraska State Capitol, which has 400 ft tower. It is also home to the Children's Zoo and the Sunken Gardens.

Lincoln is the state capital of Nebraska that was named after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. This city ranks 2nd in the population of 284,736 in 2017 and is the 71st largest in the U.S. with an area of 94.267 square miles. It was founded as the Lancaster Village in 1856 and became the state capital of Nebraska. In 1867, Lancaster was renamed to Lincoln and been using the name since then.

The first people were attracted to permanently settle down in this state due to the large quantity of salt that can be found here. Many salt mines were developed in Lincoln and became the main source of income of the state until salt mines started to boom in Kansas.
