religious toleration developed by the end of the colonial time because:
a. no church was strong enough to gain dominance
b. the colonists saw the folly of europe's bloody wars of religion

This is a poorly worded question. Where did you get it?
Each colony was founded by people with different religious preferences. Maryland was founded for Roman Catholics, Pennsylvania for Quakers, and Massachusetts for Puritans. As the colonies banded together to form the United States, little or no attempt was made to establish a dominant religion. Not only did they respect each others' faith but they learned a powerful lesson from the Old World's constant religious strife. Our founding fathers wanted no part of religious battles.
