Question World History


Hi Everyone,

I'm not sure if I'm posting in the correct place, but I've been reading the other forums and you guys really know your stuff. I have three questions that are stumping me, so I'm asking for help. I have seen forums here on some of the questions I have, but the answers aren't that clear and there are multiple answers. I've been using The Earth and Its People 6th ed for answers with no luck. Again, if I'm posting in the wrong spot please excuse the error . Thanks in advance for any help on my study guide.


Why didnít China industrialize when most of Europe did?
Europe was a pile of many active rivals. Emulating others' successes; but avoiding their dead ends

China was always "more than "one thing than Europe was.

This looks like homework which we won't do for you. Good for you for checking your text book first. A better place to post these questions is in the Homework Help section.


I'll give you a hint on #3. It happened in the late 1400s. Who was ruling Spain in the time of Columbus? When you have that answer, google it or check Wikipedia to find out how.

1. What made the first Ming ruler unique in Chinaís long history?
A. Very young, B. A eunuch, C. A commoner, D. A priest

2. A big question for Historians is: Why didnít China industrialize when most of Europe
did (1500 to 1800)?
A. Few natural resources, B. Backward education system with little math or science,
C. Not enough workers available, D. No way to ship/trade goods overseas.

3. How was the new nation of Spain created?
A. Victory of Castile over all other areas, B. Joining of two trade districts,
C. Marriage of two families, D. Rebellion by a young aristocrat drew people to unite.
Questions 1 and 3 should be easy to answer, since all you have to do is look up the history of Ming China and Spain, and you should be able to figure our the answer. In the case of the Ming emperor, the articles might not state why the Ming emperor was unique, but if they don't, you should be able to figure it out by the details given about the life of the emperor.

Question 2 will be harder, since not all historians agree on tne answer, so you might have to derive the answer by eliminating the answers that are obviously not true. The question is called the "Great Divergence" when you do interner searches.

Problem with number 1 is that the answer is actually flawed in translation.

Really, I am curious how it is flawed. I have ruled out all the other answers on question 1, so I don't see where the translation is flawed.

Because one is a monk, and not a priest.

Right, this was my problem with that question. It didn't say monk.
