    France so interested in setting up a colony in Florida because they wanted to build a base to attack Spanish ships and steal the gold they were sending from South America to Spain.

    Answer: Option A

    Explanation:

    The French settlers and armed forces that existed in the south-eastern part of North America were aware of the transport of gold that was done by the Spanish to take it back to Spain.

    The French wished to loot the Spanish ships transporting gold from South America to Spain and take hold of Spanish ships full of gold. To fulfil this wish of theirs, they wanted to build a military base in Florida.
