    @Breelervsyu C is wrong because steam boats came BEFORE gas boats so we can eliminate that answer choice .

    i'm pretty sure that large numbers of people came on ships/boats to north america so D is wrong they did have large boats.

    @Breelervsyu I think you are correct because, there was no way people could go up stream I think without a force that could propel a boat in a direction against the current.

    I Do not know its kind of confusing because unless the current was stronger back then and I could see A being an answer too.
