  41. The answers are:
    The correct answer for 1 is B. Ghost towns were left behind after the mines stopped producing

    As settlers started spreading westwards and going to places like California during the Californian gold rush, they built up cities from the ground and opened up inns and created small towns and similar things for anyone passing through. When they figured out they wouldn’t get gold as much as they wanted the cities were left abandoned.

    The correct answer for 2 is A. passing along traditions and knowledge

    Women mostly focused on preparing food and gathering plants and similar things while men focused on hunting or waging wars or such endeavors. They both worked together however on passing knowledge and traditions because they passed what they knew about them and which were often related to their “jobs” in the society

    The correct answer for 3 is D. to encourage Native Americans to become farmers

    The Dawes Act stated that Native land would be split into smaller units and if a Native American wanted to become an owner of the piece of land and live there with their family that they would have the possibility of taking the land and farming it while also assimilating into the American culture and leaving their tribe

    The correct answer for 4 is D. It opened up national markets for selling and obtaining resources and helped lower costs of production

    Because of the development of railroads, it was now possible to sell goods far away from the place where they were produced. Also the production prices were lowered because you could just put them on a train and have them reach the goal fast without any losses in time or damaged goods or having thieves steal them or anything similar.

    The correct answer for 5 is B. increased development of Western lands

    Because of the homestead act, the people who wanted could now go westwards and settle places and grow farms or cities or things like that with the help of the government. It was an instrumental act when it comes to spreading westwards as many people wanted to obtain their land which was difficult in the eastern regions.

    The correct answer for 6 is A. currency reform

    They believed that a currency reform was necessary to help people and that the free silver idea was a key one in this. They supported bimetallism which coincided with the ideas presented by the Democrat William Bryan Jennings who made the famous cross of gold speech which garnered not only the support of Democrats but populists as well.

    The correct answer for 7 is B. Gospel of Wealth

    The paragraph is actually a part of the gospel of wealth and it was written by Carnegie himself. He advocated in this the necessity of the wealthy to help through taxes and public projects and similar things and to make the country a better place for the people who don’t have the wealth. Wealth of Nations was more about forming a successful economic system than it was about philanthropy.

    The correct answer for 8 is C. competition

    In a free market state, competition is everything. You can’t overcharge for your products because someone else might start manufacturing something and selling it at lower and realistic prices and then your company would lose. This practice brings in theory the best products at the cheapest prices for consumers

    The correct answer for 9 is C. lack of public and legal support for union activities

    Towards the ending of the 19th century, many presidents and public officials were against unions because they believed that the unions were hampering the economy so they couldn’t outlaw them completely but they could make it harder for them to operate. This is why numerous unions struggled with getting support.
