The answer is C) It prohibited slavery in most of the former Louisiana Territory except for Missouri. Why is it C)? Its C because the Missouri Compromise (1820) prohibited slavery in most of the former Louisiana Territory except for Missouri. Specifically, it prohibited slavery above 36°30'N. This was meant to prevent slavery from being an issue as new states was added, but this would not be the case.
