CHOOSE THE CORRECT OPTION.


WHICH OF THE FOLLOWING FACTORS EXPLAIN THE RELUCTANCE OF THE DUTCH EAST INDIA COMPANY (VOC) TO CONSIDER USING EITHER INDIGENOUS OR DUTCH LABOUR AT THE CAPE DURING THE FIRST FEW YEARS OF ITS SMALL SETTLEMENT AT TABLE BAY IN THE 1650s?


a. THE VOC FOUND THAT MANY DUTCH LABOURERS WERE KEEN TO WORK AT ITS NEW BASES AT THE CAPE, MAKING SELECTION OF SUITABLE PEOPLE DIFFICULT

b. THE USE OF WAGE LABOUR AT THE CAPE WOULD HAVE BEEN EXPENSIVE AND UNDERMINED THE VOC POLICY OF MINIMUM EXPENDITURE

c. LARGE NUMBERS OF KHOESAN WERE WILLING TO ADOPT A NEW WAY OF LIFE TO WORK FOR THE DUTCH, EXCEEDING THE LIMITED LABOUR REQUIREMENTS OF THE VOC
