World History Lecture Six describes the crusades as a series of wars covering nearly 200 years, from A.D. 1096-1291, and goes on to list five campaigns:

  • First Crusade: 1096-1099
  • Second Crusade: 1147-1149
  • Third Crusade: 1189-1192
  • Fourth Crusade: 1202-04 and
  • Childrens' Crusade of 1212

According to the data of the crusades, we have five campaigns or (four military campaigns and a failed pilgrimage) covering more then 100 years.

On the other hand, the data of 1291 indicates the fall of Acre, the last of the crusaders' states. This happened after the ninth crusade (1271–1272).

Not mentioned at all is e.g. the Albigensian Crusade (1209-1229), declared by Innocent III.

Now you ask in your exam:

The Crusades were:
(a) two military expeditions over a 100-year period, beginning in AD 1050, by Christians to free Jerusalem and make it safe for pilgrimages
(b) four military expeditions over a 100-year period, beginning in AD 1099, by Christians to free Jerusalem and make it safe for pilgrimages
(c) five military expeditions over a 200-year period, beginning in AD 1001, by Christians to free Jerusalem and make it safe for pilgrimages
(d) one military beginning in AD 1050, by Christians to conquer the world

None of the answers fits the information given during your lectures (4/5 campaigns from 1096 until 1212/1291) - or what seems to be consensus under historians: from 1095-1291 they generally enumerate nine crusades to free Jerusalem.
