U.S. History (Check, Please!)(REED)
As usual, you are correct, but incomplete on some things. For question seven, the atomic bomb, President Truman said later that he knew that to invade Japan to finish the war would cost many, many American lives. To end the war quickly was his goal, and the atomic bomb seemed ...

American history
D is the closest to what happened (or is happening even now, 20 years later). The greatest increase in jobs has been in technical fields, such as computers and robotics, etc. Industrial jobs in the U.S. have been in decline.

Say them aloud. What seems natural to emphasize: It is the white CAR I want. (as opposed to a white what, a coat, or a dog?) It is the WHITE car I want. (not the blue one or the black one) You get the idea. :)

I don't know what your textbook says. I haven't read it. After World War II, we were involved in the "Cold War". Civil rights legislation came along in 1957, then in the mid-1960s. In the meantime, we concentrated on defense in developing a nuclear arsenal, ...

No, oceans are not the easiest to cross for cultural exchange or "cross-pollination". They are not insurmountable barriers at all, but rivers are easier to cross, and do usually serve as highways, not barriers at all.

I think you're right. None of them is a real barrier, as Damon noted in response to your earlier question, but of these, a river is probably the least formidable.
