Your answers are 1. A (Hernando de Soto)
and 2. D (Horses are found throughout the Americas).

This is because Hernando de Soto was a Spanish explorer who left the first European expedition into modern-day US territories like Florida or Alabama. He is also the first European who was documented as having crossed the Mississippi River.

And horses weren't introduced into the new continent until 1519 (16th century) by Spanish explorers in Modern-day Mexico.
