    D) Both required that immigrants pass health inspections.

    Explanation:

    Ellis Island served many people of European descent while Angel Island served many people of Chinese or Japanese descent. This is due to the fact that Ellis Island is located in New York while Angel Island is located in California. This shows why A and B are incorrect.

    Letter C is incorrect because this only happened at Angel Island, not Ellis Island.

    This shows that D can be the only correct answer. Both immigration centers checked for physical ailments to ensure that these new citizens would not spread sicknesses/diseases to citizens in the US.
