  2. Hey, Trevor!

    First of all; the Ferdinand was a portuguese explorer, but he was working with the Spanish.explorer. The Aztecs were conquered by Hernan Cortes after he imprisoned and executed their leader. So we can rule out A and D. His expedition was not to conquer any North or South American empires; that was already done. I think you are correct, because he discovered a route called the Strait of Magellan and became the first European to sail the Pacific. The Spice Islands are now caled the Maluku Islands, and they are off the coast of Indonesia. The Portuguese colonized these in the 1800s
