    Correct Answer
    A. The Failure to recognize and acknowledge a more interdependent world
    Explanation
    The Soviet Union's failure to recognize and acknowledge a more interdependent world can be seen as one of the causes of its downfall. The Soviet Union operated under a closed, centralized economic system, which hindered its ability to adapt to changing global dynamics. By not acknowledging the importance of interconnectedness and failing to engage in international trade and cooperation, the Soviet Union isolated itself and fell behind economically and technologically. This lack of recognition and adaptation ultimately contributed to the decline and eventual dissolution of the Soviet Union.

    Explanation
    The New Economic Policy was put into place in 1921. This policy was implemented by the Soviet Union as a response to the economic crisis that followed the Russian Revolution. It aimed to reintroduce some elements of capitalism in order to revive the economy. The policy allowed for limited private enterprise, foreign trade, and the introduction of a new currency. It was seen as a temporary measure to stabilize the economy and was eventually replaced by more centralized economic planning under Joseph Stalin in the late 1920s.

    During the Cold War, the Soviet Union had a poor relationship with the United States. The two superpowers were engaged in a geopolitical and ideological rivalry, known as the Cold War, which lasted from the end of World War II until the early 1990s. The Soviet Union and the United States were on opposite sides of the political spectrum, with the Soviet Union advocating for communism and the United States promoting capitalism and democracy. This led to tensions, conflicts, and proxy wars between the two nations. Ultimately, the Soviet Union lost the Cold War to the United States, which contributed to its dissolution in 1991.
