"levels" is plural so you need to have the plural past version of "to be" which is "were".

In this case it means a large amount of borrowing (money). Financing usually means borrowing money.

Thanks for the information.

when it says "Florence had eighty banking houses that took deposits, made loans"

IMO B

from Florence example it is clear about the levels of financing, like making deposits, giving loans, performing other activities which banks do, etc.

hope u r clear now ....

The subject is "levels" which is plural and so, the option with "were" should be right...
