      False

    Correct Answer

    Correct Answer
    B. Sadducees
    Explanation
    The Sadducees were the closest group related to the Maccabean Priest. The Pharisees were another prominent Jewish group during that time, but they had different beliefs and practices compared to the Maccabean Priest. The Essenes were also a Jewish sect, but they were known for their ascetic lifestyle and were not directly related to the Maccabean Priest. Therefore, the Sadducees were the closest group in terms of their connection to the Maccabean Priest.
