Question: 1129

4. The key reason for the slowing of protests after 1971 was that

A. America was winning in Vietnam.
B. the government became more responsive.
C. the draft ended.
D. all the major battles had been won.
E. the government cracked down on protesters.

Correct Answer: C


When the draft wound down, so did the majority of protesters. America was never winning in Vietnam, Nixon increased the bombing so his moves toward peace were never apparent, the war had not ended by 1971, and government harassment had never stopped the protests.
