Explanation: In France, the heavy tax burden was borne exclusively by the third estate, who could least afford it. In the American colonies, colonists disputed the contention that Parliament had the right to impose taxes on the colonies without colonial representation in Parliament. The American Revolution changed very little with regard to the existing class structure; however, France’s class structure changed dramatically (A). Although France wanted to abolish the monarchy, the American colonists kept the ideals of a bicameral legislature, separation of powers, and colonial legislatures, as well as representative government (C). The French Revolution sought to limit the influence of religious leaders, but the American Revolution did not.
