They were oppressive rulers who did not make any significant reforms to address the demands for change. Instead, they maintained a strict and autocratic rule, suppressing any attempts to challenge their authority or introduce reforms. This approach resulted in a lack of progress and contributed to the growing discontent among the Russian population, ultimately leading to the downfall of the Romanov dynasty.

    Explanation
    The reigns of Alexander III and Nicholas II contributed to the paving of the way for revolution because they both maintained an autocratic government without implementing any reforms. By upholding autocracy, they denied the demands for political and social change from various groups within Russian society. This led to growing discontent and frustration among the population, ultimately fueling revolutionary sentiment. The lack of reforms and the suppression of dissenting voices created a fertile ground for revolutionary ideas to take hold and for the eventual overthrow of the monarchy.

On the other hand, the Nationalists ignored the problems faced by the peasants. By providing land to the farmers, the Communists were able to gain support and loyalty from the peasant population. This redistribution of land allowed the peasants to have a stake in the Communist movement and improved their economic conditions, making them more inclined to align themselves with the Communists rather than the Nationalists.

    Explanation
    The middle class made up most of the representatives when the Duma met to form the provisional government. This is because the middle class typically holds a significant amount of political and economic power in society. They often have the education, resources, and social status to be involved in politics and hold positions of influence. Additionally, the middle class tends to be more politically engaged and active in advocating for their interests, making them more likely to be represented in government bodies like the Duma.

    Totalitarian dictatorships aim to have complete control over their citizens, including their thoughts, beliefs, and loyalty. Allowing religions would create a potential rival for the dictator's authority and power. By promoting loyalty towards the dictator and discouraging loyalty towards God or any other religious figure, the dictator ensures that the citizens' allegiance remains solely with the regime. This helps maintain the dictator's control and prevents any potential challenges or opposition that religious beliefs may pose to their authority.
