    9. B - Vassalage

    10. C - Avignon

    11. B - Holy Roman Empire

    The economies of both France and England were devastated by wars; neither was a particularly wealthy country at the point.

    Magna Carta is the basis of not only English Law, but also that of the United States, Canada, Australia and quite a few other countries.
