Ms. Sue please help!
3. Read the passage and answer the question that follows:

Many slaves preferred not to escape their horrible lives on plantations because their families were often with them. Despite the fact that slaves had no rights, they often found ways to sabotage the plantations on which they lived. Slaves would pretend to be ill so they would not have to work. They would also create trouble by breaking tools such as hoes and plows, which were needed for work. Mothers would work fewer hours to care for their children, so women gave birth to many children. The Br'er Rabbit stories illustrate this tricky ingenuity.

    10. Use this passage to answer the following question:

    The Cotton Gin
    Andrea Brecheen

    The cotton gin was one of the most amazing and tragic inventions of early America. The cotton gin is credited to the brilliant and creative American inventor Eli Whitney. Because Whitney's invention made cotton harvesting easier, it allowed farmers in the South to increase production. The cotton gin simplified the process of removing the cotton from the seeds, a process formerly done by hand.

    As a result, Southern plantations increased their production of cotton from 750,000 bales in 1830 to 2.85 million bales just 20 years later. Because of the increase in production, the farmers in South became even more dependent on cotton for revenue. This new reliance on cotton increased the need for slavery. More slaves were needed to farm the ever expanding cotton plantations. If Whitney had known the effects his invention would have on slavery, he never would have created it.
