How did the geography of the Indian sub-continent, during the reign of the Gupta, contribute to the movement of the people and ideas? 1) The control of the Asian trade routes meant that culture and ideas could flow freely through the Empire. 2) The location of the Empire between northern mountains and southern seas was subject to monsoons. 3) As the continent was enclosed by water on three sides, cultural exchange was limited. 4) The location of the Empire made it significantly vulnerable to attacks from seafaring pirates and profiteers.

What two states were given permission to decide between slave and free as part of the Compromise of 1850? New Mexico Arizona Texas Utah

Answer:

The two states that were given permission to decide between slave and free as part of the Compromise of 1850 were New Mexico and Utah.

Explanation:

As part of the Compromise of 1850, slavery was allowed in the new territories of Utah and New Mexico by appealing to the principle of popular sovereignty as a method to circumvent the Wilmot Amendment and decide whether it was allowed within the borders of these new territories. In practice, these lands were inappropriate for agricultural plantations and their colonization was not properly of slave origin.

Why did President Theodore Roosevelt use the Roosevelt Corollary in the Dominican Republic? Answers: Roosevelt did not want the Dominican Republic to attack Haiti. Roosevelt was afraid American businesses would lose money if there was a revolution in the Dominican Republic. Roosevelt was afraid European countries would take action against the Dominican Republic if it did not pay its debts. Roosevelt needed to have military bases in the Dominican Republic to protect the Panama Canal.

Answer:

President Theodore Roosevelt used the Roosevelt Corollary in the Dominican Republic because he was afraid European countries would take action against the Dominican Republic if it did not pay its debts.

Explanation:

The Roosevelt Corollary was a substantial amendment to the Monroe Doctrine by President Theodore Roosevelt. In its altered state, the Monroe Doctrine would now consider Latin America and the Caribbean as territory to expand the commercial interests of the United States in the region, in addition to its original purpose of keeping European hegemony outside the hemisphere.

Roosevelt applied his variant to the Monroe Doctrine for the first time taking the customs of the Dominican Republic in 1905 to pay the foreign creditors of that nation. This event provoked a great indignation in the European leaders and in particular of the kaiser Wilhelm II.

The Allies had to fight a global war in two theaters. What challenges might that type of war have presented? Select all that apply. Troops and supplies would have to be divided between two distant locations. Forces would have to be maintained and supplied over a huge part of the globe. Enemy forces held the initiative in both theaters in early 1942. Germany and Japan could send troops to reinforce each other when needed.

Answer:

Troops and supplies would have to be divided between two distant locations.

Enemy forces held the initiative in both theaters in early 1942.

Forces would have to be maintained and supplied over a huge part of the globe.

Explanation:

The challenge that World War II had to fight on two theaters was that the War was fought on a great variety of territories and almost on the entire world. Some of the battlefields were Africa, Asia, and Europe. That was a big challenge because the people that took decisions had to decide on whether how to divide the troops and supplies according to the tactics they thought.

Also, by the time the United States entered the war, the Axis had almost the entire Continental European territory and in Asia, Japan had conquest large portions of China. They had the initiative in both theaters until the U.S. Army entered the War and change the course of the tie.

I hope this answer helps you.

Consider the problems faced by African Americans, Chinese immigrants, Mexican Americans, and women after the Civil War. How were the experiences and responses of these groups similar? How are they different?

The problems that they had all faced were discrimination along with the struggles to gain equality in the United States. Things that differed were the ways in which they were treated especially for women who had the ability to live in comfort but had no say in what happened in their lives. African Americans really only had other African Americans to speak to and sympathize with them. Chinese were still very much so hated in the US and got treated like they were next to nothing, and Mexican Americans were really just stereotyped as pack-mules. 

Hope I at least got the idea of what they were asking for :D
