    C. To restrict civil liberties of his opponents
    Explanation
    The burning of the Reichstag allowed Hitler to restrict civil liberties of his opponents.

This allowed Hitler to suppress political opposition and consolidate his power in Germany.

The armistice that ended the fighting in World War I was signed on that date, but the actual signing of the Treaty of Versailles took place on June 28th, 1919. The treaty was signed by representatives from Germany and the Allied powers, and it laid out the terms and conditions for peace after the war.

Hitler and his supporters stormed a beer hall in Munich, but the coup was quickly suppressed by the police.

    Correct Answer(s)

    Explanation
    The Treaty of Versailles imposed several stipulations on Germany as a result of World War I. Germany lost roughly 13% of her land, had to pay reparations, and undergo demilitarization of the Rhineland. These measures were aimed at punishing Germany for its role in the war and weakening its military capabilities. The other options, such as Germany coming under French rule or revealing the secret location of their treasure maps, are not accurate and do not align with the historical facts of the Treaty of Versailles.
