China had a centralized government with no internal disturbance. They were working to eliminate all traces of foreign rule and discouraging using anything that emanated anything mongol and instead promoted Confucianism. China was incredibly self sufficient and had no interest in acquiring foreign goods. They believed merchants should come buy their goods. They focused more on the weak north border than on exploration.
Europe had a very fragmented system of states that were competitive and dived. Some taxed citizens efficiently and had infrastructures, while others didn't. There were also many internal wars. They believed they had surpass the the confined religious world and moved on to the Renaissance period. Europe craved the wealth that belonged to Africa and Asia. They were looking for power as well as new trade routes so they didn't have to go through the Muslim empire. Europe had goals of spreading their religion and culture around the world.

The correct answer is : C) Both grew wealthy through trade along the Silk Road
Explanation: The silk route was very important because in addition to being a commercial route, it transmitted ideas such as Buddhism, Christianity and Islam. Technical knowledge was also extended, such as iron manufacturing, well drilling, powder and paper manufacturing and printing techniques. The three largest groups that traded along the silk route were: the Mediterranean, Central Asia and Western Asia.
After coming to contact with Europeans, China and Japan remain hostile to the outsiders and considered them as barbarians.
Japan and China, in the beginning, did not welcome the European to entire their countries. China and Japan considered themselves superior to the European with their manners and customs. Both of the nations took control of the trading regularities with keeping the prices high for Europeans. The Opium war and coming if the Commodore Perry, led the empires to open their nation for trading purposes. Japanese and Chinese rulers had little patients when it came to missionaries who were in their zeal to convert people in Christianity.
Both the Chinese and the Japanese felt that the Europeans were barbarians. They were particularly repelled by the smell of these foreigners who ate much fattier diets and who did not typically wash very often. They also felt the Europeans lacked subtlety and were rather crass in their behaviors.
The similarities, however, largely end there. The Chinese tried to simply ignore the Europeans. They were able to do this to some degree because the Europeans did not have anything they wanted. They were willing to take European silver in exchange for tea and otherwise leave the Europeans alone. This worked until around the time of the Opium Wars when the Europeans forced China to open itself more.
China came into contact with the Portuguese in 1517, which started the trading relations with the Europeans. Japan in 1543 began to contact with the European traders. Both of the dynasties considered them a barbarian who lacked manners and uncivilized compared to them. China allowed the Europeans to trade with them but did not allow to come inside the province. Whereas, Japan hesitated to open its ports in the beginning but later opened it because it lacked resources.
