Solution

The correct option is B Austrian monarch was French Queen Antoinette’s brother.
Antoinette, King Louis XVI's wife, was the sister of the Austrian monarch. Louis XVI sought his help to become the monarch once again, after the French revolutionaries dethroned him. So, Austria and Prussia rallied to restore the monarchy in France.
