The correct answer is Option A) agriculture was the basis of the economy.

During the early Middle Ages, only a few towns existed because agriculture was the basis of the economy.

There were very few towns and the only cities were the capitals of the Empire where the King and the ruling elite lived.

Historically, we can see that change after the industrial revolution, as more and more people moved to non-agriculture jobs and urbanization took foothold.

Washington: Institutions, like individuals, are properly judged by their ideals, their methods, and their achievements in the production of men and women who are to do the world's work.

Their hopes, fears, strength, weaknesses, struggles, and triumphs can not fail to be of absorbing interest to the great body of American people, more particularly to the student of educational theories and their attendant results. 1.
