1 Answer

  • Answer:

    C. an urban society with increased access to goods and fossil fuel use.

    Explanation:

    The Industrial Revolution is marked with scientific changes that also led to the invention of machineries that used fossil fuels such as coal, natural gas and crude oil.

    The use of these fossil fuels accelerated the industrial production and increased the need of workforce, which pushed the population to leave the rural communities and move to urban areas. The urban society grew largely together with factories, while the rural activities such as growing crops and farming techniques declined.
