User: 19. What happened as a result of the so-called Intolerable Acts? A. A massacre occurred on the Boston Commons. B. A Committee of Correspondence was formed. C. The port of Boston was closed. D. The famous Boston Tea Party was planned

Weegy: The answer is B, [ but the question itself is a bit off since 1) It is the "Intolerable Act-S" [or "Coercive Acts" ] - plural! - since Parliament took a whole SERIES of actions in response to the Boston Tea Party 2) it's a bit confusing to say that the closing of the port of Boston was a "result" of the Intolerable Acts. Rather one of these acts (the Boston Port Act [March 31, 1774]) mandated the closing of the port. ]
