The correct answer is letter A. The Scopes Trial focused on the teaching of human evolution in a public school. It was an American Legal Case in 1925, where a substitute teacher with the name of John Scopes was accused of violating Tennessee's Butler Act; an Act which made teaching human evolution in state-funded schools as unlawful.
