The correct answer is A. A comparison of the French revolution 1789 and the Russian Revolution 1917 illustrates that political and economic inequalities often lead to demands for change.
-The French Revolution was a social and political conflict, with various periods of violence, which convulsed France and, by extension of its implications, other nations of Europe that faced supporters and opponents of the system known as the Old Regime. It began with the self-proclamation of the Third State as a National Assembly in 1789 and ended with the coup d'état of Napoleon Bonaparte in 1799.
-The term Russian Revolution groups together all the events that led to the overthrow of the imperial tsarist regime and the prepared restoration of another, republican, between February and October 1917, which led to the creation of the Soviet Federative Socialist Republic of Russia. The Tsar was forced to abdicate and the old regime was replaced by a Provisional Government during the first revolution of February 1917. In the subsequent October revolution, the Provisional Government was eliminated and replaced with a Communist-led Bolshevik government known as the Sovnarkom.
