  3. Several extensions of the Marshall Plan
  4. The accomplishment of its imperialist aims
  5. The rebuilding of industry and the pragmatism of the workers
Answer: E - Post-war West Germany benefitted enormously from the rebuilding of industry and the willingness of German workers to accept small gains.
