    At some point, you will be tested on this. Read your book and do it yourself.

    You have to wait at least two hours before you can pick a best answer, and these kinds of questions rarely get real answers. If you spent that 2-3 hours studying, you could figure this out on your own. You could figure it out in less time if you just sat down and worked.

  • Do your own homework... but i know it sucks i hate history and i am terrible at it and im in an AP class. woohoo.
