Solution

The correct option is D An expansion of factories
As new methods of manufacturing were introduced, factories came up and started expanding. The people who worked on farms earlier, now began to work in factories in large numbers. People began to use many more goods that were produced in factories at cheap rates. As a result, the secondary sector gradually became the most important in total production and employment.
