The Prime Meridian is the line of longitude that passes through Greenwich, London, and is considered the starting point for measuring longitude.

    The Treaty of Tordesailles is important today because South American nations have a strong connection to Spain and Christian-based religions due to the negotiations that took place in 1494. This treaty divided the newly discovered lands between Spain and Portugal, giving Spain control over most of South America. As a result, Spanish culture, language, and religion heavily influenced the region, shaping its identity and heritage. The impact of these negotiations can still be seen today in the strong connection between South American nations and Spain, as well as their shared Christian-based religious traditions.

This was due to the high demand for spices in Europe, which were used for various purposes such as preserving food and enhancing flavors. However, the existing trade routes were controlled by the Ottoman Empire, making the spices expensive and difficult to obtain. Therefore, European rulers sponsored explorations in search of alternative routes to Asia, leading to the discovery of new lands and the establishment of colonies.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    During the time period mentioned, the Ottoman Empire had indeed gained control over many of the major overland trade routes. This meant that European countries had limited access to these routes and faced higher costs for trading with Asia. As a result, they were motivated to find alternative routes that would be more cost-effective. Therefore, the statement is true.

Therefore, "change" is the best definition of revolution as it encompasses the broad and transformative nature of this concept.

      For coal mining

    Correct Answer
    A. For rubber
    Explanation
    King Leopold II of Belgium decided to colonize the African Congo primarily for the purpose of exploiting its vast rubber resources. During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, rubber was in high demand globally, and Leopold saw an opportunity to amass wealth and power by gaining control over the Congo's rubber production. The extraction of rubber from the region led to widespread exploitation, forced labor, and human rights abuses, making it a dark chapter in the history of colonization.

    Colonial boundaries cut across ethnic groups and remained after African countries received independence.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Colonial boundaries refer to the borders that were established by European colonial powers during the colonization of Africa. These boundaries often disregarded the existing ethnic groups and instead were drawn based on the interests and agreements of the colonial powers. After African countries gained independence, these colonial boundaries remained in place, resulting in diverse ethnic groups being divided by national borders. Therefore, the statement that colonial boundaries cut across ethnic groups and remained after African countries received independence is true.

    Correct Answer
    D. Europeans viewed African peoples as equals
    Explanation
    During the period of imperialism, European nations aimed to exploit and dominate African countries. This involved establishing control over their resources, expanding trade networks, and imposing their cultural and religious beliefs. As a result, Europeans did not view African peoples as equals, but rather as inferior and in need of their guidance and civilization. This perception of superiority was deeply ingrained in the imperialist mindset, leading to discriminatory policies and practices that reinforced the power imbalance between Europeans and Africans.

      Type of government system

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above" because communism is not only a theory, but also an economic system and a type of government system. As a theory, communism is a set of principles advocating for the abolition of private property and the establishment of a classless society. As an economic system, communism advocates for the collective ownership and control of the means of production. And as a type of government system, communism refers to a one-party state where the government has control over all aspects of society and the economy. Therefore, all three options accurately describe different aspects of communism.

    • A.

      Able to start a business they wish

    • B.

      Unable to own a business if they wish

    • C.

      Do not have to work

    • D.

      Can own a farm but no other types of business

    Correct Answer
    B. Unable to own a business if they wish
    Explanation
    Under the communist economic system, people are unable to own a business if they wish. In a communist system, the means of production are owned and controlled by the state, rather than by individuals or private entities. This means that individuals do not have the freedom to start and own their own businesses as they wish. Instead, the state controls and manages all economic activities, including the ownership and operation of businesses. This is done in order to promote equality and prevent the concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a few individuals.
