      True

    This statement is true because neophytes are indeed people who are new to the Catholic religion. The word "neophyte" is often used to refer to individuals who have recently converted to Catholicism or are in the early stages of their faith journey.

This transition significantly impacted their traditional way of life and cultural practices.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True

    Russia's interest in settling in Alta California can be explained by several factors. Firstly, the region offered vast natural resources, including fertile land and abundant wildlife, which could support agricultural and hunting activities. Additionally, the strategic location of Alta California along the Pacific coast provided access to valuable trade routes and potential naval bases. Furthermore, Russia's expansionist ambitions and rivalry with other European powers in the 18th and 19th centuries may have motivated their interest in establishing a presence in this region. Overall, these factors indicate Russia's genuine interest in settling in Alta California.
