Let's look at all the options: 1.isolated geographical areas influence language change -this is in fact the best explanation for why dialects develop! the correct answer!    2.contact with the general American mainstream -no, this rather leads to the disappearance of dialects 3.cultural influences -let's take an example: in former Yugoslavia, Serbo-Croatian developed into several dialects because people had different religions, so it's correct!  4.ethnic background -I think that a good example for such a dialect is Black Vernacular English, so correct!
