Answer:

One result of European merchants trading along the Silk Road was the distribution of goods from the Middle East, from South Asia, and from East Asia to Europe, and viceversa.

Explanation:

This trade allowed Europeans access to goods such as carpets, pearls, and chickpeas from the Middle East, spices from India, and silk (hence the name of the road), from East Asia, especially from China.

This trade benefited all social classes, but it is true that it particularly benefited the wealthy ruling classes, because they could afford the very expensive goods that the European merchants brought from very far away lands, and with great difficulty.
