Explanation
Europe is located east across the Atlantic Ocean. The Atlantic Ocean separates Europe from North America, making it necessary to travel eastward across the ocean to reach Europe. The other options, west across the Atlantic Ocean and both options across the Pacific Ocean, are incorrect as they do not accurately describe the location of Europe.

The statement is false because the French came to the Great Lakes Region to make money trading furs with the Native American tribes, not with the fish.

The French established fur trading posts and formed alliances with the Native Americans to facilitate the fur trade.

Opportunity cost refers to the value of the next best alternative that is foregone when making a decision. In this context, "Giving up Something for Someone Else" is the correct answer because it accurately represents the concept of opportunity cost. It implies that when making a choice, one has to sacrifice or give up something in order to prioritize the needs or wants of someone else. This highlights the trade-off involved in decision-making, where choosing one option means giving up the benefits or opportunities associated with another option.
