The war was fought between the British and French, along with their respective Native American allies, over control of North American territories.

    Explanation
    The Proclamation of 1763 stated that the colonists were not allowed to settle or expand westward beyond the Appalachian Mountains. This was done in order to prevent conflicts with Native American tribes and to maintain peace on the frontier. Additionally, the proclamation declared that the land won by the British during the French & Indian War would be reserved for the American Indians. This decision was made to appease the Native Americans who had supported the British during the war and to establish a boundary between the colonists and the Native American territories.

    Correct Answer
    B. American Indians
    Explanation
    The Proclamation of 1763 benefited American Indians. This proclamation was issued by the British government after the French and Indian War, and it aimed to regulate the westward expansion of the American colonies. The proclamation established a boundary line along the Appalachian Mountains, which limited the colonists' ability to settle in Native American territories. This helped protect the land and rights of American Indians, preventing further encroachment and conflict with the colonists.

    Explanation
    The French & Indian War resulted in the British government accumulating a large war debt. This was due to the significant costs incurred during the war, including the expenses of maintaining troops and funding military campaigns. The war debt put a financial burden on the British government, leading to various actions such as increased taxation on the American colonies, which eventually contributed to the tensions that led to the American Revolution.
