Question 1

Contemporary chroniclers tended to exaggerate the number of deaths resulting from the plague, and many settled on an estimate of one out of every three souls succumbing to the disease. Modern scholars, incorporating data from archaeological and documentary sources, believe that one third of the total population of Europe is actually fairly accurate.

According to current estimates, approximately how many people died in the initial phase of the Black Death?

A 3 million

B 5 million

C 10 million

D 20 million
