  3. i'm not sure about #2. but here's what i found for #3, 4 parts to the Monrow Doctrine:
    1. The U.S. would not get involved in the internal affairs of European coutries, nor would it take sides in wars among them.
    2. the U.S. recognized the existing colonies and states in the Western Hemisphere and would not interfere with them
    3. the U.S. would not permit any further colonization of the Western Hemisphere
    4. any attempt by a European power to control any nation in the Western Hemisphere would be viewed as a hostile action toward the U.S

    so what would be the answer?
