PLEASE HELPRead the passage from Sugar Changed the World. Cutting cane was hard work, but it was nothing like what came next: Piles of freshly cut cane had to be fed into the ever-turning mill wheels, until t were completely crushed. The owners insisted that during the work hours the grinding never stop, no matter what. The mills were most oen tended by women who were doing dangerous work while getting almost no rest. That was a very bad combination. An ax was oen propped up near the rollers so if a slave closed her eyes for a second while pushing the cane, her arm could be hacked off before she was pulled through the merciless grinders. Guests at sugar plantations oen remarked on how many one-armed people t saw. Day aer day, week aer week, month aer month, the cane was cut, hauled to the mill, and fed through the rollers. The mills kept going as long as there was cane to grind—the season varied between four and ten months, depending on the local growing conditions. A visitor who came to Brazil in 1630 described the scene: "People the color of the very night, working briskly and moaning at the same time without a moment of peace or rest, whoever sees all the confused and noisy machinery . . . will say that this indeed is the image of Hell.” Which text evidence best supports the authors' claim that a frantic pace made working conditions even worse? "The owners insisted that during the work hours the grinding never stop, no matter what." "The mills were most oen tended by women who were doing dangerous work while getting almost no rest." "Guests at sugar plantations oen remarked on how many one-armed people t saw." “this indeed is the image of Hell”
