2. Both A and C are correct, in a way. Many people did get rich from the Gold Rush, but not so much from finding gold lying on the ground, as Ms. Sue accurately says. Many towns were established, so that is true. People got rich from supplying the mines and miners with equipment, entertainment, clothing, lodging, and banking what money did come from the mines.

It did cause a huge infflux of settlement in the west (California in particular). San Francisco had a population of under 1,000 in 1848, and had boomed to some 20,000 by 1850.

C is probably the best answer here, but I have no idea what Connexus will consider correct.
