    The correct answer is C. The Coercive Acts closed Boston harbor and then placed Massachusetts under military rule.

    Explanation:

    The Coercive Laws was the name given by the settlers of the Thirteen Colonies to a series of laws promulgated by the British Parliament in 1774. These laws triggered outrage and resistance in the colonies and were a major factor in the growth of the American revolution.

    One of these laws closed the Boston harbor and gave the governor of Massachusetts exceptional powers; the colonists would bear the expenses of the English forces in America and the trial of English officials would be outside the jurisdiction of the colonies.
