"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"

banks took loans or bank offered 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.

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