    Imperialism is basically "go out and conquer lands for us". Nonaggression and isolation is kind of counter to that idea. So...which one do you think would fit?

    Definition of imperialism: a policy of extending a country's power and influence through diplomacy or military force. SO, it is the act of a country conquering other countries lands, but using force. D could not be right since it is a period where America somehow acquires territory. C could not be right, what would America be doing with that power? B is basically the same. A seems most logical, the key word being "nonaggressive".

    Julianne, I was pointing exactly to where I was directing them to because Nonaggression and Isolationism is the exact opposite of Imperialism. So I'm not wrong, actually.

    No. Let me explain further. Nonaggression Isolationism does not describe Imperialism. So When I pointed to A, I was correct.
