Answer:

b). Most of the former colonies of the United Kingdom and France have incomes that fall below $5,000 with a very high aid dependency.

Explanation:

The given excerpt asserts a true claim regarding the economic attributes of the former colonies. The majority of the previous 'colonies of France and the U.K. possessed incomes ranging below $5000 along with a record aid dependency.' This implies that the governments were heavily reliant on the amount coming from foreign countries instead of their growing their economies on their own and being self-reliable. Thus, option b is the correct answer.
