1.)The Council of Trent consisted of Catholic priests who met between 1545 and 1563 for what purpose? A) to plan what would become the First Crusade Eliminate B) to propose ways to convert Native Americans C) to kick King Henry VIII of England out of the Catholic Church D) to address the issues involving the growing Protestant movement 2.)While many commoners in England initially opposed Henry VIII, they supported him when he dissolved the Catholic Monasteries. Like commoners throughout Northern Europe, many were angry with the Catholic Church for what reason? A) They objected to clergymen who lived lavishly. Eliminate B) They were Calvinists who believed in predestination. C) They were Separatists who wanted to leave the Church. D) They were Puritans who believed that the Church was too fancy and elegant.

Answer #1 - D) To address the issues involving the Protestant movement.

Answer #2 - A) They objected to clergymen who lived lavishly.

Some additional notes:

In regard to question #2, I've seen some people answer this question with item D, saying commoners supported Henry VIII's dissolution of the monasteries because they were Puritans.  That is incorrect, however, because the Puritan movement did not begin until later, under the reign of Elizabeth.

Regarding question #1, the Council of Trent, held over a span of years from 1545 to 1563,  served to reform some abuses that were acknowledged by the Catholic Church.  Mostly, though, the Council aimed to assert the full authority of Roman power and doctrine over the Protestant threat.

What was the Trail of Tears? the route cowboys took to transport cattle to and from markets in the East the route used by American Indians being forcibly relocated west of the Mississippi River the trail used by thousands of immigrants and pioneers to travel westward the symbolic trail of women suffragists as they fought to gain the right to vote

The correct answer is B. The route used by American Indians being forcibly relocated west of the Mississippi River


As a result of the New Echota treaty that legislated the relocation of the indigenous people located in the east of the Mississippi River to the east of the river (under economic interests), the "Trail of tears" occurred. This situation took place from 1831 to 1838 and was a mass exile of American Indians and especially from the Cherokees and Choctaw tribes, who were exiled from the east of the Mississippi River to the west of the same river. During this displacement, around four thousand Indians died due to the poor conditions in which they were moved and where they were relocated. So, the correct answer is B. The route used by American Indians being forcibly relocated west of the Mississippi River.

What major point was Thomas Paine trying to make using the evidence in this passage? A The British army was thoroughly unprepared to take on the American colonists. B The Continental Army had a realistic chance of winning against the British. C The Continental Army was not likely to defeat the British, but it could still compel the British to negotiate. D It was necessary to remain vigilant against cowardly people who were willing to spread rumors of defeat. Passage: While our army was collected, Howe dared not risk a battle; and it is no credit to him that he decamped from the White Plains, and waited a mean opportunity to ravage the defenceless Jerseys; but it is great credit to us, that, with a handful of men, we sustained an orderly retreat for near an hundred miles, brought off our ammunition, all our field pieces, the greatest part of our stores, and had four rivers to pass. None can say that our retreat was precipitate, for we were near three weeks in performing it, that the country might have time to come in. Twice we marched back to meet the enemy, and remained out till dark. The sign of fear was not seen in our camp, and had not some of the cowardly and disaffected inhabitants spread false alarms through the country, the Jerseys had never been ravaged. Once more we are again collected and collecting; our new army at both ends of the continent is recruiting fast, and we shall be able to open the next campaign with sixty thousand men, well armed and clothed. This is our situation, and who will may know it. By perseverance and fortitude we have the prospect of a glorious issue; by cowardice and submission, the sad choice of a variety of evils . . .

A The British army was thoroughly unprepared to take on the American colonists.

How does the geography of the United Kingdom impact trade? A) Countries are reluctant to trade with a nation that is so far north. B) It is in a part of Europe that cannot be reached during winter months. C) Other nations are too far away and cannot trade with them on a regular basis. D) It can be more expensive to import and export goods because it is an island nation.

The correct answer is D.It can be expensive to import and export goods because it is an island nation because Most goods have to be imported or exported by ship rather than by truck or train. This can potentially add to the cost of goods entering or leaving the country. This situation has been helped, though, by the creation of the Chunnel, a train that travels between the United Kingdom and France underneath the English Channel.

Which Amendment to the Constitution should have protected Japanese American civil liberties during WWII?

The correct answer is the 14th amendment.

The 14th amendment included the Equal Protection Clause. The Equal Protection Clause was supposed to ensure that all laws were applied equally to American citizens, regardless of race and national origin.

However, after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the federal government took thousands of Japanese-American citizens and put them into internment camps. This violated the civil liberties of these citizens, as they committed no crimes but were forced to live in these restricted areas.
