Explanation

The atomic bomb was initially developed by the Americans. The Americans decided to use the atomic bomb to end World War II quickly and thus the correct answer is B.

At the Potsdam Conference, the Allied Nations gathered to discuss harsh measures against Germany. They likewise discussed what to do with Japan, since they continued to battle the Allied in the Pacific Ocean. The three leaders decided that Japan should submit unconditionally to end this conflict as soon as possible.

Truman was incensed by Japan’s refusal to accept the Potsdam Conference’s conditions. Truman considered various alternatives, including a land invasion. A D-Day-style invasion, on the other hand, would almost certainly have resulted in 500,000 fatalities (or more). This might take months or even a year to complete. Truman decided to use atom bombs on both Hiroshima and Nagasaki in order to save American lives and bring the war to an end sooner.
