The correct answers are B and C. The objectives of the First Continental Congress were to point out the British Parliament’s violation of colonial rights and to provide a plan that would convince Britain to restore colonial rights.
The First Continental Congress was a body of representatives elected by the legislative bodies of the Thirteen Colonies in 1774, except Georgia. It briefly met and appointed its successor, the Second Continental Congress, which organized the Americans in the war against the British.
On September 5, 1774, the representatives of the assemblies of the colonies met in Philadelphia. The dilemma that faced the Congress was not simple because it had to show firmness before the British Government and, at the same time, it had to restrain the independence wishes of the Sons of Liberty, which alarmed the conservative sectors, more inclined to reach an agreement with the Crown.
Congress passed a Bill of Rights and Grievances addressed to the people of Great Britain and the colonies, and also approved a petition to the king. Both documents recognized Parliament's right to regulate foreign trade but defended the right of the colonies to manage their own internal affairs without the intervention of the imperial government.
This decision did not please the more radical groups, who argued that the Parliament had no right over the colonies.
The correct answer is E
