Prior to 1763, the British government generally followed a policy of salutary neglect towards the American colonies because it:

a) wished to secure the loyalty of the colonies
b) lacked a well-organized imperial system
c) lacked the power to make laws for the colonies
d) did little trading with the colonies
e) rejected the idea of mercantilism

I think that the answer is a but I'm not sure so if anyone could help me that'd be great! Thanks! :)
