Who
 The British Parliament were the ones in 1774 who decided on the Acts. These Intolerable Acts consist of five different acts. Four of them were for punishing Massachusetts for throwing the tea
 into the Boston Harbor in December. Another name for all of the Intolerable Acst was Coercive Acts.

What

Administration Of Justice Act May 20, 1774
Massachusetts Government Act May 20, 1774
Quebec Act May 20, 1774

Where
Only involved Massachusetts

Why
They mad most of these acts because they were angry at all of the protestion that the colonist had done. Also they were angered and shocked about the tea being dumped into the Harbor.
The colonist had a good reason though becaus the king, George the III,  raised  the taxes they
had to pay.

How
The Coercive Acts  were presented to the colonist. When they looked at the acts they disagreed with all of them and what the British wanted them to do. They diagreed so much that they changed the Coercive Acts name to the Intolerable Acts because they couldn't tolerate.
