The only possible answer here is 4.  None of the other options have anything whatsover to do with internal improvements.

The Maysville Road was a road that was entirely within the state of Kentucky.  The Congress had passed a bill that would have given federal aid to help build the road.  This was something that Jackson's political opponents favored because it was an attempt to build the country's infrastructure.  Four days later, Jackson signed a bill giving government aid to the "National Road."  By doing this, Jackson carved out a middle position.  He would give some aid to internal improvements, but he would not allow the federal government to give aid for projects that were within one state only.
