(C) it had had a successful socialist revolution
(D) it was geographically isolated from Europe
(E) it had dictated the terms of the Treaty of Versailles
  1. Correct Answer: B


    The United States came out of the war in a strong position because fighting had not taken place in the United States; therefore, its indus- tries were intact and in fact were operating at peak production.
