I'll be glad to check your answer.

Virginia Colony was founded after the Massachusetts Bay Colony.
The answer is A. Puritans were considered very strict and anybody who did anything wrong was considered a witch (they were the ones who started the Salem Witch Trials).
B, C, and D are false, particularly E (The winters in the "New World" were very harsh. Many colonists died from the cold and from starvation, diseases, etc.)
