    Correct Answer
    D. Europe, Asia, and Africa
    Explanation
    The Roman Empire was spread out through Europe, Asia, and Africa because the Romans were known for their extensive conquests and territorial expansion. They first established their dominance in Europe, conquering various regions such as Italy, Gaul, and Britain. They then expanded eastward into Asia, conquering parts of modern-day Turkey, Syria, and Egypt. Finally, they extended their influence into Africa, particularly in the regions of Egypt and Carthage. This widespread empire allowed the Romans to exert control over a vast territory, establishing a unified administration and spreading their culture, language, and governance throughout these three continents.

    Correct Answer
    D. Tiberius and Gaius Gracchus
    Explanation
    Tiberius and Gaius Gracchus were two individuals who attempted to implement early reforms in Rome. They were brothers and politicians who advocated for land redistribution and other social reforms to address the growing economic inequality and political corruption in the Roman Republic. Tiberius served as a tribune of the plebs in 133 BC and proposed a law to limit the amount of public land an individual could hold, while Gaius served as tribune in 123 BC and introduced a series of reforms aimed at improving the lives of the lower classes. Their attempts at reform ultimately led to their violent deaths and marked a turning point in Roman politics.

    The females in the roman society had no freedom.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In the Roman society, females had limited freedom and were subjected to strict social and cultural norms. They were expected to fulfill traditional roles as wives, mothers, and homemakers, and their activities and movements were often restricted. They had little to no political or legal rights and were under the authority of their male relatives. Their lives were largely controlled by men, and they had very limited opportunities for education, employment, or independent decision-making. Therefore, it can be concluded that the statement "The females in the Roman society had no freedom" is true.

    Explanation
    The Romans prayed to Neptune. Neptune was the Roman god of the sea and was considered a powerful deity who controlled the waters. The Romans, being a maritime civilization, relied heavily on the sea for trade and transportation, so they would often pray to Neptune for safe voyages and calm seas. Additionally, Neptune was also associated with freshwater sources, such as springs and wells, so people would also pray to him for a bountiful water supply.

They used a solar calendar, which was based on the cycles of the sun and the annual flooding of the Nile River.

This calendar system was later adopted by the Romans and eventually evolved into the calendar that we use today.
