Which of the following statement(s) is/are true regarding colonialism and slave trade in America?
  1. African Slaves were transported in good conditions to America.
  2. Colonisation resulted in economic progress of the colonies.
  3. Europeans enslaved the native Americans.
  4. Europeans exploited the natural resources of the colonies.


Solution

The correct options are
C Europeans enslaved the native Americans.
D Europeans exploited the natural resources of the colonies.
Slaves were transported to America in pathetic conditions and many of them died on the way. Colonisation and slavery is responsible for the economic progress of European nations not the entire world. The European settlers in America had farms and plantations, for which they needed cheap labour. The settlers made huge profits in this business and European countries alone progressed.
