    C. Weakening Frontiers: The huge size of the empire made it nearly impossible to defend
    Explanation
    The Roman Empire collapsed due to a combination of political instability, economic problems, and weakening frontiers. The empire struggled with peacefully transferring leadership, often selecting unqualified leaders and experiencing corruption. Additionally, the cost of financing large armies became too burdensome, leading to heavy taxation of the people. The reliance on slave labor also contributed to the destruction of the middle class and a lack of job opportunities for non-slaves. Furthermore, the vast size of the empire made it difficult to effectively defend its frontiers, ultimately leading to its downfall.

    During the Middle Ages, there was a need for protection and order, which led to the development of the feudal system of government. Feudalism was a hierarchical system where land was exchanged for loyalty and military service. It involved the granting of land, known as fiefs, by the king or lord to vassals, who in turn provided military service and other forms of support. This system helped to establish a social structure and maintain stability in medieval Europe. Therefore, the correct answer is Feudalism.

    • B.

      Barter System

    • C.

      Feudalism

    Correct Answer
    C. Feudalism
    Explanation
    Feudalism is a system of government based on land ownership/control that bound people to each other through promises of loyalty. In this system, the king or lord granted land to vassals in exchange for their loyalty and military service. The vassals, in turn, granted smaller portions of land to knights or peasants who would work the land and provide them with goods or services. This hierarchical structure created a system of mutual obligations and dependence between the different classes of society.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    People were born into a feudal class and couldn't change classes.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In a feudal society, social classes were rigidly structured and individuals were born into a specific class that determined their rights, privileges, and responsibilities. The class system was hereditary, meaning that one's social status was determined at birth and could not be changed during their lifetime. This system prevented social mobility and ensured that individuals remained in the same class throughout their lives. Therefore, the statement that people were born into a feudal class and couldn't change classes is true.

Therefore, the statement that more people began moving to towns around 1000 C.E. in Europe is true.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    During the Middle Ages, the social structure was largely based on feudalism, where the majority of the population consisted of peasants or serfs. These individuals were tied to the land they worked on and were obligated to provide labor and a portion of their produce to the nobility in exchange for protection. Peasants and serfs formed the backbone of the medieval economy, working in agriculture and contributing to the sustenance of the feudal system. Therefore, it can be concluded that the statement "The vast majority of people in the Middle Ages were Peasants/Serfs" is true.

    During the medieval period, monarchs would grant fiefs or manors to nobles in exchange for their loyalty, military service, and financial support. These fiefs were parcels of land that the nobles would then control and manage. In return, the nobles would provide the monarch with knights, who were trained soldiers, as well as monetary contributions. This system of granting fiefs helped to establish a feudal society, where power and resources were distributed among the nobility in exchange for their services to the monarch. Therefore, the statement is true.

Trade allowed for the exchange of resources, fostering economic activity and attracting more people to settle in these towns. The concentration of trade in a central location also facilitated the development of specialized markets and businesses, leading to further growth and prosperity for the town.

    • A.

      Riches

    • B.

      Poverty

    • C.

      Disbelief

    Correct Answer
    B. Poverty
    Explanation
    In feudal societies, poverty was prevalent among the majority of the population. The lack of resources and opportunities for the common people led to desperation and a higher likelihood of engaging in criminal activities. The limited access to education, healthcare, and basic necessities created an environment where crime was more prevalent in towns. The stark contrast between the wealthy few and the impoverished many further exacerbated the crime rates in feudal societies.

    B. Nobles, king
    Explanation
    In medieval times, the legal system was often based on feudalism, where the nobles held significant power. The nobles acted as judges and were responsible for judging and deciding the fate of those accused of crimes. Additionally, the king, as the ultimate authority, also played a role in the judgment of accused individuals. Therefore, people accused of crimes were judged by nobles and the king.

    Rate this question:

  • 28. 

    The accused would often have to pass tests of innocence.  An example is the accused would be thrown into a well, if drowned they are innocent, if they float they are guilty and then punished.  Fought:  God would make sure that the right person won.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In medieval times, trials by ordeal were commonly used to determine guilt or innocence. One such ordeal involved throwing the accused into a well or body of water. If they sank and drowned, it was believed that God had accepted them and they were innocent. However, if they floated, it was seen as a sign of guilt and they would be punished. This belief in divine intervention ensured that the "right" person would be victorious in the ordeal. Therefore, the statement that God would make sure that the right person won is true.

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above" because all the mentioned examples were indeed forms of punishment in feudal Europe. Hanging and burning at the stake were commonly used for crimes such as witchcraft or heresy. Stocks and the Iron Maiden were used to publicly shame and inflict physical pain on offenders. Quartering involved dividing a person's body into four parts, while the rack was a torture device used to stretch the victim's body. These brutal punishments were prevalent during the feudal period in Europe.

    B. Economic Problems: Too expensive to finance large armies (Heavily taxed people to do this). Slave labor destroyed the middle class (not enough jobs for non slaves)
    C. Political instability: Could not peacefully transfer leadership. New leaders were often chosn who were not qualified. Corruption
    Explanation
    The collapse of the Roman Empire can be attributed to several factors. The hudge size of the empire made it difficult to defend, leading to weakening frontiers. Additionally, economic problems arose as it became expensive to finance large armies, resulting in heavy taxation of the people. Slave labor further contributed to economic issues by destroying the middle class and creating a lack of job opportunities for non-slaves. Political instability also played a role, as the empire struggled to peacefully transfer leadership and often ended up with unqualified leaders. Corruption further exacerbated these problems.
