      Able sailors

    Correct Answer
    C. Technology
    Explanation
    European sailors were not able to sail for more than 3000 miles because they lacked the necessary technology. Without advanced navigation tools, such as accurate maps, compasses, and astrolabes, they were unable to accurately determine their position at sea and navigate long distances. Additionally, they lacked the necessary shipbuilding techniques and designs to withstand long voyages. The lack of technology hindered their ability to explore and navigate the vast oceans, limiting their sailing capabilities to shorter distances.

The ability to sail against the wind made caravels highly versatile and efficient vessels, contributing to the success of many exploratory voyages during that time.

    Explanation
    Pope Alexander VI issued the Line of Demarcation in 1493 to settle disputes between Portugal and Spain over newly discovered lands. This line divided the newly discovered territories outside of Europe between the two countries. The territories to the west of the line were assigned to Spain, while the territories to the east of the line were assigned to Portugal. Therefore, the Line of Demarcation separated Portugal's colonies from Spain's colonies.

    Correct Answer
    A. Atlantic Ocean
    Explanation
    The Line of Demarcation refers to the imaginary line established by the Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494. This line divided the newly discovered lands outside Europe between Spain and Portugal. It was agreed that Spain would have control over the lands to the west of the line, while Portugal would have control over the lands to the east of the line. The Atlantic Ocean is the correct answer because the Line of Demarcation passed through it, dividing the territories of Spain and Portugal in the New World.
