Don't be thrown off by the tricky social studies terms.
The stuff about "republican ideology" only comes into play after we learn about the United
States as a rural society...

"Equitable" describes when everybody gets an evenly sized piece of the proverbial pie.
Though the concept of equitability is a politically charged word...
..but it has nothing to with farming, so it's a no-go.
"Theocratic" describes a government run by a religion...
...and "tyrannical" describes a government ruled by a cruel person with absolute power.
Again, these words have nothing to do with farming, so they get the boot.
"Urban" is definitely wrong because it refers to cities and towns, which is the opposite

rural, (A) is the correct answer.
A for "Agriculture is weird sometimes."
