    from what I have read, a colonus worked on a farm and had to pay the government money or product for the rent. so I would think the would be B. @jgirl128

    I actually think the answer is A. "The coloni's tenant-landlord relationship eventually degraded into one of debt and dependence. As a result, the colonus became a new type of land tenancy, in which the occupants were placed in a state between freedom and slavery." "The landowner of the estate could sell his property, and the coloni adscripticii tied to the estate would be forced to work for the new owner. Thus, they were comparable to slaves, as they were forced to do the bidding of the landowner, attached to a specific plot of land, and bound to the contract for indefinitely. The only difference between the coloni and slaves, was that the coloni were attached to a specific piece of land and could not be sold or separated from it." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colonus_%28person%29
