    Correct Answer
    A. Creek and Cherokees
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Creek and Cherokees because these were the two main Native American groups that inhabited Georgia. The Creek people were a confederation of several tribes who primarily lived in the central and southern parts of the state. The Cherokees, on the other hand, resided in the northern part of Georgia.

    Correct Answer
    B. California
    Explanation
    The Cherokee and Creek tribes did not live in California. Both tribes were indigenous to the southeastern United States, specifically in the areas that are now known as Georgia and South Carolina. California is located on the opposite side of the country, and therefore, these tribes did not inhabit that region.

    The correct answer is "trees and rivers" because the question states that most of the Cherokee and Creek lived in areas where there were lots of something. Given that the options are people, trees and rivers, skyscrapers, and shopping malls, it is reasonable to assume that the answer refers to natural elements rather than man-made structures. Therefore, the presence of trees and rivers in these areas would be a more logical and plausible explanation.

This means that they exchanged goods and services with others in order to acquire the things they needed. This method allowed them to access resources and products that were not naturally found in their own territories, expanding their access to a wider range of goods and materials.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is that the Europeans wanted the land for themselves, so they forced the Cherokees and Creeks to leave.

The Europeans desired the land for various reasons, such as expanding their settlements and exploiting its resources. This forced the indigenous tribes to abandon their ancestral territories and relocate elsewhere.
