Answer:

The U.S. Navy was outgunned by the Japanese navy.

Explanation:

The Japanese navy sent a fleet of ships to the Coral Sea where they met up with a small group of American ships, only one of which was a carrier, the aging USS Lexington which was severely damaged and scuttled early on and the USS Yorktown, and no battleships like the Japanese had.

The U.S. cruisers, however, were able to outmaneuver the Japanese navy and inflicted severe enough damage upon it to cause its retreat.
