    Correct Answer
    C. 8 Centuries
    Explanation
    Feudalism lasted for 8 centuries in Japan. Feudalism refers to a social and economic system in which land is owned by a small group of wealthy individuals, and the majority of the population works as peasants on the land. In Japan, feudalism began in the 12th century with the establishment of the Kamakura Shogunate and continued until the Meiji Restoration in the late 19th century. During this time, power was decentralized, and the samurai class emerged as the ruling elite. The long duration of 8 centuries indicates the stability and endurance of the feudal system in Japan.
