Both civilizations were ruled by an emperor.- yes, it's true!Both civilizations played a game of ball with the rings.-this is also true (but I don't think that the author of the question means it as an answer: the Zapotecs played only a little, when they had come into contact with other cultures.Both civilizations practiced monotheistic religions.-absolutely false, both were polytheisticBoth civilizations existed in the years 1400. -Well, well, I'm sure that this is true, but I think that the authors wanted to say that it is false... in reality both existed until the arrival of the Spanish in the 1500s!But the main period of the Maya was also, by then, were not so powerful any more.
