Question of the Day: GED Social Studies
The following question refers to the information contained in this passage.
The city of Dubrovnik has a rich and complicated history. For centuries it served as a halfway point between the Ottoman Empire and the Christian nations of Europe. After the Ottoman Empire invaded and conquered much of the Balkans, trade between the Empire and Christian Europe was largely forbidden, except through the independent city-state of Dubrovnik (at the time called Ragusa). Considering the massive amount of trade that poured through Dubrovnik on the way from the East to the Italian city-states and the nations of Northern Europe, it is no surprise that the city grew immensely wealthy and developed an autonomous character.
Dubrovnik developed as a center of trade primarily because __________________.
of it’s unique character and system of government
of it’s location and proximity to the wealthy Italian city-states
other forms of trade between Christian Europe and the Ottoman Empire were forbidden
The Ottoman Empire controlled the city of Dubrovnik and encouraged trade
Muslims and Christians refused to engage in direct trade with one another
