    The Sussex Pledge was a pledge made by Germany during World War I to end unrestricted submarine warfare. This meant that Germany would no longer sink merchant ships without warning and without ensuring the safety of the passengers and crew. The pledge was made in response to international pressure and to avoid antagonizing the United States, which had threatened to sever diplomatic relations with Germany over the sinking of the British passenger ship, RMS Sussex.

      Tanks

    • B.

      Airplanes

    • C.

      Submarines

    • D.

      U-Boats

    Correct Answer

U-boats, or submarines, were utilized by the German navy to wage unrestricted submarine warfare. However, submarines were not a new technology during this time period, as they had already been in use for several decades. Therefore, submarines are the correct answer as they were not a new technology during World War I.

    Trench warfare was the main method used in WWI only on the western front. It involved soldiers sitting in trenches and continuously firing at the enemy. This strategy was developed due to the stalemate on the western front, where neither side could gain significant ground. Trenches provided protection from enemy fire and were connected by a network of trenches, creating a complex system. Soldiers would engage in periodic attacks, but the overall objective was to defend their position rather than launch an all-out offensive. This method of warfare resulted in prolonged battles and high casualties.

      Stalin made, and broke promises that he would include non communist leaders in the government and hold free elections.

    Correct Answer
    C. Stalin made and kept promises that he would be a non communist leader and hold free elections
    Explanation
    The Yalta Conference was a meeting between the leaders of the Allied powers during World War II to discuss the post-war reorganization of Europe. One of the main points of contention was the future of Germany's industry. Britain wanted to keep German industry intact for economic reasons, while the Soviets wanted to destroy it as a form of revenge. The west also wanted eastern Europe to be free and democratic, which was opposed by the Soviet Union. However, the statement that Stalin made and kept promises that he would be a non-communist leader and hold free elections is not accurate. Stalin did not make such promises, and in fact, he went against these ideals by establishing communist regimes in Eastern Europe and suppressing political opposition.
