It's C. Look up the Siege of Grenada in 1492. It was last battle of Reconquesta, or the drive of the Christian Spaniards to reconquer Spain from the Moors. Resulted in the formation of the Kingdom of Spain, the Reino Castillio y Leon. Interesting enough, the same King and Queen who financed Columbus were the same ones who defeated muslim Al-Andalus.
On a weirder note...the Moorish arabs gave the Spaniards plenty of practice with warfare. So the bored Spaniards basically went to America and conquered it.
Here I Got Something That May Help With This Question.
"Andalus (the Iberian peninsula), which was conquered in the year 92 of the Hijra, continued for many years to be a dependency of the Eastern Khalifate, until it was snatched away from their hands by one of the surviving members of the family of Umeyyah (Umayyad), who, crossing over from Barbary, subdued the country, and formed therein an independent kingdom, which he transmitted to his posterity. During three centuries and a half, Andalus, governed by the princes of this dynasty, reached the utmost degree of power and prosperity, until civil war breaking out among its inhabitants, the Muslims, weakened by internal discord, became every where the prey of the artful Christians, and the territory of Islam was considerably reduced, so much so that at the present moment the worshippers of the crucified hold the greatest part of Andalus in their hands, and their country is divided into various powerful kingdoms, whose rulers assist each other whenever the Muslims attack their territories."

i jus hope i never come across this in my entire sch. life
Lol Yeah You Say That Now.
Look at the source when you check out information. Sources can be biased. Its given by Pascual de Gayangos, a spaniard. So its possibly propaganda spread by the Spanish.
Arabs established two different rival Caliphates, one in the east and the west. It resulted in Al-Andalus the (Western Caliphate) not able to draw support from the East.
