Which accurately describes the contributions of Evangelista Torricelli to the Scientific Revolution?
He created a sustained vacuum and discovered the principle of a barometer.

He invented the geometric and military compass used by surveyors, merchants, and the military.
He discovered elliptical orbits of planets around the sun, as opposed to a circular orbit.
Is it D?
Why do you keep guessing? The answer is plainly in your text and accessible in Google.
I remembered reading about one of the thirty explorers in my text, and I knew one of them did this, but you're right. I'll google it...
So he discovered the barometer, correct? Wouldn't that be A? It's the only one with the barometer in it.
