  1. What does your text say?

  2. My text doesn't say specifically anything, but I have to infer. For Portugal I found four things, but for Spain I only thought of that they had strong armies, they wanted to find the Spice Islands, and that they wanted to spread Christianity to non-Christian areas.

  3. Those look good. I'd also add that they both had strong navies, excellent navigators, and money.

  4. Those are all good ideas. Thank you!!
