    The correct answer is D) William wanted information so he could know what taxes to place on his subjects' property

    Explanation:

    William was the first Norman King of England and after coming to power, wanted to know exactly what was present in the kingdom, from where can he generate most revenue and how he needs to enforce taxes.

    This culminated in the development of the doomsday book. Written in Latin, it is seen a treasure trove of information on the world that existed in Britain over a thousand years ago.
