2 Answer

  • Considering the available options, the statement NOT a cause of the Armenian genocide of 1915 is "The Armenians enacted their genocide against the Turks a decade earlier."

    Before the Armenian genocide of 1915, there was never in recorded history that Armenia attacked and massively killed the Turks before.

    However, it was recorded that at some point, the region of Armenia was economically and educationally prosperous than the Turks.

    Also, the Young Turks wanted to get eliminate all ethnic and religious diversity in the Ottoman empire, as they were majorly Muslims, while the Armenians were predominantly Christians.
