    Correct Answer
    B. 1807
    Explanation
    In 1807, the British Parliament passed the Slave Trade Act (Abolition of the Slave Trade Act), making the purchase or sale of slaves illegal across the Atlantic and within the territories of the British Empire. While it did not abolish slavery, the Slave Trade Act sought to end the inhumane treatment and exploitation of the enslaved. Slavery would not be officially abolished in the British Empire until 1833, and it would not be until 1981 when globally, all nations would abolish the all forms of slavery.
