2. british restriction on the distribution and sale of tea
3. the high tariffs imposed by england on the colonists

I think it is 2

  • history -

    2 is the best choice, but it really lacks of accuracy. I am really wondering who crafted these questions, they seem to miss the point of historical events.

    The Boston Tea Party was a action against the favoritism of the East India company getting favorite tax treatment from the Crown, not paying any taxes, thus undercutting the price American Tea Smugglers (read John Hancock) could sell for. So 2 is the closest to this, but you really ought to know the right answer.
