Question and answer
Q: Mexico City is an example of how humans alter their environment because it was __________. A. one of the world’s largest cities B. built on drained and filled lake beds C. built after conquest
by the Spanish D. once the capital of the Aztec empire
A: The Aztecs, part of modern day Mexico, were once the epitome of fine culture. They began their rule of southern and central Mexico during the 14th century and practiced an incredibly wealthy lifestyle. [ [ Nonetheless, this rule began to deteriorate when Spanish explorers disembarked at Tabasco and Vera Cruz on April 21st 1519. When the Spanish voyagers first arrived, they were welcomed
warmly, respectfully and received Godlike treatment. Montezuma, the ruler at that time, believed that the Spanish military leader, Hern?n Cort?s, was the great god Quetzalcoatl. The Spanish took advantage of this Aztec belief and conquered Mexico within two years. By 1521, the Aztec culture was officially eradicated and a new culture, consisting of a combination of Aztec and Spanish elements, emerged. Hence, the Aztecs and the Spanish acclimatized to each other?s way of life, which resulted in significant changes in both cultures. Although the original system of government was kept, a new concept of hierarchy was implemented. The conquest allowed for both cultures to adopt new foods, animals and linguistics. Christianity however, became a stipulation and the very foundation of the way of life in Mexico. source: ] ]
