Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Slaves were treated the same on small and large plantations.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because slaves were not treated the same on small and large plantations. On large plantations, there were more slaves, which often led to harsher treatment and stricter control. Slaves on small plantations had a better chance of forming closer relationships with their owners, which sometimes resulted in slightly better treatment. Additionally, on larger plantations, the work was more demanding and the living conditions were often worse.

    Correct Answer
    B. Considered acceptable against white people(II)
    Explanation
    The given answer suggests that stealing was considered acceptable against white people. This implies that stealing from white people was seen as permissible or justified in some way, while stealing from others was not considered acceptable. This answer suggests a distinction based on race, indicating that societal norms and attitudes towards stealing were influenced by racial biases or prejudices.

    Impotence depended on the master's mood.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that the occurrence of impotence is influenced by the master's mood. This implies that if the master is in a positive or relaxed mood, impotence may not be an issue. On the other hand, if the master is in a negative or stressed mood, impotence may be more likely to occur. Therefore, the statement implies that the occurrence of impotence is dependent on the master's mood.

    Men tended to work in the field, and women worked in the "big house"

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because it generalizes and stereotypes the roles of men and women in society. While it may be true in some historical contexts that men predominantly worked in the fields and women in the "big house" or household, it is not universally applicable. Throughout history and across different cultures, men and women have engaged in a variety of work activities, including both agricultural and domestic tasks. Therefore, the statement oversimplifies and ignores the diversity of roles and responsibilities that men and women have had.

  • 5. 

    The slaves would generally have the Sunday off.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that slaves would typically have Sundays off. This implies that they were given a day of rest and were not required to work on Sundays. This aligns with historical accounts of slave labor practices, where owners would often allow their slaves to rest or engage in religious activities on Sundays. Therefore, the correct answer is true.
