    Ok so the answer is 5, 2 and 3.


    The explorers did not find a waterway from Central America to the Pacific. But they did sponsor Columbus, who "discovered" the brand new settlement of Hispaniola. Through quickly conquering territory along the Americas, Spain also became the first to locate those rivers.
