  • Answer:

    Option:  B. He became wealthy by producing sturdy, denim pants for gold miners.

    Explanation:

    It was during the Gold rush in San Francisco, Levi Strauss started a dry goods shop and later sold denim for the miners in gold mines. Denim was more comfortable to wear and was strong. Before the denim, the canvas was worn by the miners while working. In 1873 Strauss with his brother introduced blue jeans which we today known as Levi's.
