    On June 28th 1914, an assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand took place in Sarajevo. Who was the man that came up with the idea to kill him and his wife Sophie?

    Correct Answer
    B. Gabrinovic
    Explanation
    Gabrinovic is the correct answer because he was one of the members of the group known as the Black Hand, which planned and executed the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie. Gavrilo Princip, another member of the Black Hand, is often mistakenly believed to be the sole assassin, but Gabrinovic was also involved in the plot.
