American Literature mcqs

Q.  The annals of Massachusetts Bay will inform us, that of six governors, in the space of about forty years from the surrender of the old charter, under James II., two were imprisoned by a popular insurrection – a third, as Hutchinson inclines to believe, was driven from the province by the whizzing of a musket ball – a fourth, in the opinion of the same historian, was hastened to his grave by continual bickerings with the house of representatives – and the remaining two, as well as their successors, till the Revolution, were favored with few and brief intervals of peaceful sway. What is an “insurrection” ?

a. An act or instance of beginning
b. An of revolting against civil authority
c. The state of one risen from the dead
d. The condition of being stopped
