What was the significance of the Treaty of Tordesillas?

A) It established the line of demarcation that granted Spain the right to lands in the Americas and Portugal the right to settle in Africa.
B) It promoted the idea that the Catholic religion would be allowed to establish missions in the Americas.
C) It provided Portugal with the opportunity to establish colonies in the Americas.
D) It ended the Seven Years’ War between Spain and Portugal and allowed for the Portuguese settlement of Brazil.

I already tried A and D and they were both oddly incorrect, so I think the answer is C although Spain got the Americas?

  1. Spain didn't get all of the Americas. Remember, Brazil speaks Portuguese.

    Treaty of Tordesillas
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Jump to navigationJump to search
    The Treaty of Tordesillas was a treaty between Portugal and Spain in 1494 in which they decided to divide up all the land in the Americas between the two of them, no matter who was already living there. Pope Alexander VI was the Pope at the time of the treaty. He drew an imaginary line 2,193 kilometers to the west of the Cape Verde Islands, gave Portugal the land to the east of this line, and gave Spain the land to the west of this line. King Ferdinand II of Aragon and Queen Isabella of Castile were the rulers of Spain at the time and together they signed this treaty in Tordesillas, Spain, which is how the treaty got its name. This also changed Spanish and Portuguese exploration of the New World, which in part explains why the Portuguese-speaking part of South America became one country called Brazil and the Spanish-speaking colonies split up into many different independent countries including Argentina, Colombia, and many others.

    So C is correct.
