I have this question on a homework assignment and I need help.

Under Chief Justice Marshall's definition of "interstate commerce"
as quoted from the Gibbons v.Ogden case,
which one of the following activities would most likely be subject to regulation by Congress?

A. A rancher cuts timber on land he
owns in one state and transports
it 500 miles to his residence in
another state to burn in his
fireplace.

B. A woman regularly takes fruit that
she grows on her property and
donates it to a charitable food
pantry that is only two miles
away,but the pantry is in another
state.

C. A company produces cookies that
will be shipped to other states
to be sold in student fundrasing
events.

D. A college student makes money by
cutting hair in her dormitory and
she does not pay any taxes on the
income.

If I am understanding the assignment
correctly, wouldn't the correct answer
be (C )?

Please Help Me!

Yes. You're right. C. involves both commerce (sales) and movement of goods between states.
