    According to the US Senate website, the correct answer is "A. each state was allotted one vote, regardless of size".

    There was a debate around the compromise of the Constitution. First, some believed each state's representation should reflect their size. Later, other debated that the representation should be determinated on the number of free slaves and citizens each states had. But larger states complained, justificating that they required a greater say in government since they contributed more to the nation's defensive and financial resources than smaller states.

    Small states then demanded equal representation in Congress, which was guaranteed under the Articles of Confederation.
