A) 4th century BCE B) 6th century BCE
C) 8th century BCE D) 10th century BCE
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 6th century BCE

Explanation:

Zoroastrianism is one of the world's oldest extant religions. It is the ancient pre-Islamic religion of Iran that survives there in isolated areas and, more prosperously, in India, where the descendants of Zoroastrian Iranian (Persian) immigrants are known as Parsis, or Parsees.

Q:

The interstate commerce act of 1887 required

Answer

The Interstate Commerce Act of 1887 is a United States federal law that was designed to regulate the railroad industry, particularly its monopolistic practices.


 


The reason that the Interstate Commerce Act required that rates be published was to avoid secret rebates and similar deals. Until then, big shippers would demand rebates from railroads, which would in effect reduce their shipping costs without letting competitors know. This is anti-competitive.


Hence, the Act required that railroad rates be "reasonable and just," but did not empower the government to fix specific rates.
