Whitney wanted to speed up the making of guns by having machines manufacture each part. All machine-made parts would be alike—for example, one trigger would be identical to another. Identical parts would fit together with all other parts, and gunsmiths would not have to build each gun from scratch. Interchangeable parts would save time and money.
Use the passage to answer the question.

Based on this excerpt from the text, in what way would interchangeable parts best help businesses?

a) Parts made by machines could be made more cheaply. (my answer)
b) Customers could get new parts faster for less money.
c) Machines could quickly manufacture parts people once made.
d) Businesses’ costs could increase to pay for the machinery.

I answer A because if you manufacture stuff, it will be cheaper than by hand, and that would bring more profit to gunsmiths.
