What statement best summarizes the information shown on this map?

A European countries divided nearly all of Africa and made these regions colonies in their empires.

The map shows the facts of how the Europeans divided Africa. Because only facts are presented, you can eliminate (European domination of Africa was immoral because it violated the principle of self-determination) and (Britain and France got more than their fair share of Africa), which contain value judgments about morality and fairness. Nothing on the map makes any reference to slavery (Europeans took African lands to gain access to the slaves they needed in the New World). In fact, by 1914, the slave trade and slavery had ended; Brazil was the last country to free its slaves (1888).
