Answer: A. The port of Boston was closed.
The Intolerable Acts took place in the year 1774, and it gave the British Parliament the power to fight against any form of defiance on the part of the Massachusetts colonies against British rule. It contains five laws, which resulted in the ports of Boston being closed down until fines were paid. It was passed after the Boston massacre occurred, and shortly after the Boston Tea Party. It was seen as an outright violation of the rights of the majority because they were all being punished for the “crime” of dumping tea.
