What was the major effect of the Great Schism?

The major effect of the Great Schism was the division between what is now the Catholic Church and Eastern Orthodox Churches.

This main difference led to misunderstandings and theological disputes, and at last, the final break came in 1054.

There were attempts of reconciliation but none of them were successful.

Germany hoped to achieve a quick victory in the First World War by invading which country first? a. Russia b. Great Britain c. France d. Serbia


The best answer is  C

The plan to attack France first was a plan by the German Chief of General Staff, Alfred Von Schlieffen which he came up with way back  in 1905.

He decided that France was the enemy to be defeated first, with Russia held off until the French were annihilated. He  worked out a detailed time timetable that took into account possible French responses to German actions. He believed that Germany would defeat France within six weeks, then after that  he would turn his full force on Russia. 

Schlieffen plan was heavily modified by his successor Moltke, thus during the outbreak of WWI in 1914, it was not implemented  as Schlieffen had envisioned.

There was a lot of tension between Great Britain and China due to the opium trade of British merchants and the Chinese of the Qing dynasty.
