    Correct Answer
    C. Spiritual motives
    The correct answer is spiritual motives. This is because imperialism was primarily driven by economic and strategic interests, such as acquiring reliable sources of raw materials and securing strategic sites on world sea lanes. The desire for land to accommodate the growing European population was also a significant motive. However, spiritual motives, such as spreading religious beliefs, did not play a significant role in driving imperialism.

    Correct Answer
    C. Divide Africa up equally to avoid war
    The Berlin Conference was held in 1884-1885 with the aim of dividing Africa among European powers to avoid potential conflicts and wars over territorial claims. The conference established rules for the colonization of Africa, including the principle of effective occupation, which allowed European powers to claim territories by demonstrating their ability to control and develop them. This division of Africa resulted in the colonization and exploitation of the continent by European powers, leading to significant social, political, and economic consequences for Africa and its people.

Portugal also had some colonies in Africa, but its influence and control were not as extensive as that of Britain and France.
