Solution

The correct option is A Ottoman Turks blocked the land trade routes.
The Ottomans blocked the land routes to the east. This made Europeans to explore a sea route to India and China. The Dutch, the Portuguese, and the Spanish wanted to find trade routes to India without coming across the Italians. Once they found the trade route they fought wars, enslaved locals and colonised the lands to increase their profits.
