  1. This question involves some pretty complicated and historically "fuzzy" concepts. The basic reason is that the Emperor ruled, and whatever he said was the rule. Here's an article about property law in Imperial China, but I don't know if it will help you:

  3. Here you go guys. I hope it helps. PS, try putting it in your own words so you don't get yelled at for plagiarism.

    Answer:

    Because farmers had to divide their lands among more and more sons, the average farmer owned only about one acre of land. With so little land, farm families could not raise enough to live. As a result, many sold their land to aristocrats and became tenant farmers.
