16 - D I'd go for this answer, computer technology advanced rapidly in WWII where it was used to break codes. One of the pioneers was Alan Turing who it is believed committed suicide after eating an apple laced with cyanide, which is why the logo for Apple is an apple with a bite taken out of it. After WWII computers were further improved with more research etc. 18 - C I think this is the correct answer, while your answer is correct it didn't stop all or even most blacks from voting. Consequently African-Americans were able to stand for election as well as vote.
You're 18 for 19.....16 should be the computer; it ( named ENIAC, big _______ machine at the Univ of Penna ), was originally built for solving problems in artillery at the Aberdeen Maine Proving Grounds ; the people at RCA had the basic ideas and tech for TV running by 1939 possibly not true, but a good story none the less..ENIAC was so freakin big and drew so much electricity it would brown out the Penn campus; and , as a source of warmth, frequently had moths and roaches crawl into it and short circuit tubes. The grad assistants had to clean out the corpses to get the thing running again, hence the term "de-bug" a computer. and thanks for actually answering the questions yourself and then asking for checks, as opposed to so many lazy people on here who would just have posted the questions and expected folks to answer them for them.
To the extent I know (and I'm fairly good at history), your answers are correct. I do not think 18 (c) is the answer, because I consider "many" to be an overstatement, and (b) is clearly correct. I do wonder about 16. I would have said (d). See then I know very little about TV, so you might be right. Wishing you an A!
You've got the correct answers for all your questions.
I believe all your answers are correct. however, #18. might it be C?
