Question:

Based on the facts in the passage, what prediction could you make about the time immediately following the Louisiana Purchase?

A People in government would make sure explorers went to the region.
Explaination

People in government knew that the purchase would make the country more powerful, but the last sentence specifically states that they needed to explore. Answer choice C is the best prediction of what would occur next. Answer choices A and D infer too much, since you cannot assume any of these based on this passage given. Answer choice B is simply a statement that does not predict anything for the future.
