Which option explains one reason why Europeans sought to convert indigenous people to Christianity?

Christianity was similar to the native people’s religion, so it made sense to convert them.
Indigenous people were very curious and actively sought to convert to Christianity on their own.
The Spanish, Portuguese, and French wanted to create a unified Catholic empire in the Americas.
Christian subjects would be easier to control, thus allowing trade to flourish.

I think it is D.
