2) Good job! (A) is right. Stalin didn't trust the West completely, even during WW2 when they were allies and that eventually spilled over into suspicion after the war. The West's relationship with the USSR deteriorated rapidly.

3) This one is a little tricky. I'd probably say that (C) is a good guess based on what the Soviets went through in history. They were invaded by Western powers that ravaged their lands, so one of the reasons they wanted to create buffer states in Eastern Europe was to protect themselves from any future invasion. That one of the reasons why Stalin and the Red Army gobbled up as much territory as they could in WW2 -- not only to expand their sphere of influence but to armor themselves against the West. 4) I'm confident with (C), also. All of the reasons are valid, but the Marshall Plan didn't explicitly say "to make Europe all powerful". That was a side effect from the successful rebuilding programs initiated by it, though. 5) (B) makes sense. NATO is primarily a military alliance. 6) (D) makes sense, also. Even today, Japan doesn't have it's own "military" the way that nations like the United States or Russia do -- they have something called the "Japan Self Defense Force" which is primarily concerned with protecting Japan. It might as well be their military, though, as some people debate today. 7) (C) is also right. MacArthur was the overall commander in Japan and headed its reconstruction efforts. Marshall is known as the guy behind the Marshall Plan. Mao Zedong and Nikita Khruschev were both Communist leaders. 8) You're on a roll! Good job. (B) is absolutely right. Mao Zedong and his Communists drove the Nationalists out of China and established their government on the mainland while Chang Kai Shek and his group fled to Taiwan and did the same there. 9) You know your stuff! (D) is the best answer for this one, so great job. :) 10) (B) is the answer that makes the most sense here. I agree with that one! Wow, great job! Even without me checking your answers, I'd say that you did a great job on your own picking the right answers.
awesome!! THANK you soooo much!!!! :)
You're welcome! Glad I could help.
