A. Patrick Henry
B. Benjamin Franklin
C. Abigail Adams
D. John Paul Jones
E. John Dickinson

Correct Answer: C


The Intolerable Acts were created specifically to punish Massachusetts, and Adams is the only person of the five choices who lived in that colony and thus would be in the best position to write about the effects of the acts from direct observation.
