The numbers next to the label “ratification” represent

A. numbers of states


Ratification involves getting 3⁄4 of the states to pass an amendment, so the answer is (A). If you didn’t know this term, you could try reasoning away the other options: Measurements, (B), don’t fit with any political message that you would find in a political cartoon, and if the numbers were years, (D), they would not correspond to the date of the cartoon (1919). The numbers of women may seem possible, (C), but it’s not clear how such a small number of individual women might fit in the picture.
