Which of the following is an accurate comparison of Adams and Jackson?
A. Adams supported efforts to promote the growth of businesses, while Jackson supported efforts to help the ordinary man.
B. Jackson supported the idea of high tariffs to increase revenue, but Adams wanted to end high tariffs.
C. Adams had strong support from the rural areas in the South and West, but Jackson's strongest supporters were from the North
D. Jackson wanted to improve the territory already under the control of the U.S., but Adams wanted to expand territory to the Pacific Ocean.
I am slightly lost on this question. Is it C.? If not, please explain and then I will probably figure it out.
Actually, I change my answer to A. That seems more reasonable
A is the best answer, not because it "makes sense" but because it's closer to the facts than the others, which are patently false. Read your text materials. Both men are interesting and had an impact on us long after they left the scene, one way or another.
