How did immigrants adapt to life in the US? (Referencing immigration during the 1900s)

In this study, we measure the contribution of immigrants and their descendents to the growth and industrial transformation of the American workforce in the age of mass immigration from 1880 to 1920. The size and selectivity of the immigrant community, as well as their disproportionate residence in large cities, meant they were the mainstay of the American industrial workforce. Immigrants and their children comprised over half of manufacturing workers in 1920, and if the third generation (the grandchildren of immigrants) are included, then more than two-thirds of workers in the manufacturing sector were of recent immigrant stock. Although higher wages and better working conditions might have encouraged more long-resident native-born workers to the industrial economy, the scale and pace of the American industrial revolution might well have slowed. The closing of the door to mass immigration in the 1920s did lead to increased recruitment of native born workers, particularly from the South, to northern industrial cities in the middle decades of the 20th century.

Which best describes Carrie Chapman Catt’s “Winning Plan” to achieve national women's suffrage? to demand a constitutional amendment instead of campaigning for suffrage in individual states to campaign strongly for women’s suffrage on the state level instead of lobbying Congress to pass a constitutional amendment to win women’s suffrage in as many states as possible while campaigning Congress to pass a constitutional amendment to amend the US Constitution to grant women suffrage and then establish it in individual states

I believe the answer is: to win women's suffrage in as many states as possible while campaigning Congress to pass a constitutional amendment.

Catt's winning plan revolve around selecting the government representatives that openly support suffrage movement to have a position in the legislative body.

By doing this in as many states as possible, the suffrage movement would have enormous power that force the federal government to conform and created an amendment to guarantee women's right to vote.

The correct answer is B.

The emergence of agriculture and the beginning of sedentary settlements and civilizations, constituted the start of the Neolithic period of human history, and took place in Mesopotamia's territories, between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. This area counted with the natural conditions for crop irrigation with the rudimentary techniques available at the time.

Agriculture and sedentarism brought specialization and division of labor. Specialization allowed to improve the instruments and tools used for each activity and productivity was rapidly enhanced. For the first time in history, men produced more than they could consume and trade started to happen.
