      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The Wall Street Crash refers to the stock market crash that occurred in 1929, which was a significant event leading to the Great Depression. While there were other factors contributing to the economic downturn, such as agricultural overproduction and unequal distribution of wealth, the Wall Street Crash played a crucial role. The crash led to a severe decline in stock prices, causing many investors to lose large amounts of money. This, in turn, triggered a chain reaction of bank failures, unemployment, and a general economic decline, ultimately culminating in the Great Depression.

    A. High unemployment
    C. Increased poverty
    Explanation
    During the Great Depression, high unemployment and increased poverty were significant factors that contributed to the economic crisis. The widespread loss of jobs led to a decrease in consumer spending, further exacerbating the economic downturn. As more people faced unemployment and poverty, the overall demand for goods and services declined, leading to a decrease in production and further job losses. This vicious cycle created a prolonged period of economic hardship and financial instability.

While some may have chosen to travel in groups for protection and companionship, many migrant workers traveled alone or with just a few companions. Factors such as economic circumstances, personal preferences, and the availability of transportation options could influence whether or not they traveled in groups. Therefore, the statement is false.

It represents the hope for a better life, where individuals can improve their social and economic status.
