Who started "Poor Richard's Almanack" in 1732, helped draw up the US Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution and invented the lightning conductor?

AThomas Jefferson
BJohn Hancock
CJohn Adams
DBenjamin Franklin

Correct Option: 4  

Benjamin Franklin
The Almanack, published annually from 1732 to 1758, featured Franklin under the pseudonym of Poor Richard, originally as a dimwitted astronomer and then as a pious, quiet and dull country dweller. It contained the calendar, weather, poems, sayings and astronomical and astrological information that a typical almanac of the period would contain but also mathematical exercises and maxims typically counselling thrift and courtesy with a dash of cynicism. Examples are: “God helps those who help themselves” and “Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.” From 1750 the Almanack also featured an early example of demographics.
