    A is correct, being one of the larger reasons of the start of the Crusades, along with D aswell. The Crusades were mainly based off of both political and territorial claims. That leaves B and C. Now in truth, the Byzantine empire did in fact ask for help of the Europeans to give them aid, which later resulted as another benefactor to sparking the Crusades. That lastly leaves C. Pope Urban II had no meaning to "prove his leadership" within the fight for Jerusalem in the Crusades. He simply wanted to generally claim the lands for the growth of Europe, not actually as God's will as he exalted to the people. It was simply for political gain.

    @Khirro, we're supposed to guide the person to the answer... Not explain it like that. I wouldn't exactly call that explaining... I'd call that "Giving answers in word form..."

    They would've came to the same conclusion if I had offered articles or other sources of information.

    Yes but that still counts as direct answer... Instead of letting the person think and use their brain to remember what they learned...

    Well, if they respect the knowledge enough they'll choose to acknowledge the information I'd gave them and not simply the answer I provided.

    Yes but the Code of Conduct wants us to guide the person to the answer. He helped this other person and I was like, "That's the way to go!" He did it perfectly. Otherewise still, people will report him for that way or "Explaining."
