There is only one possible answer to this question when you are given these choices.  Given these choices, the answer has to be D.

The way we can know that is that D is the only choice that you are given that includes North America.  We know that North America has to be in the answer because the French and Indian War of 1754-1763 happened in North America during the 18th century.  That means that any answer that doesn't have North America in it has to be wrong.

As for Asia, that choice is correct because the two countries fought over parts of India.
