  1. A


    All other option looked correct . However some could reckoned she was a member of the House of Representatives from 1973-1979

  2. d.  Becoming the Governor of Texas


    Although I would say that she accomplished all of the mentioned things, I would go with d, because she was the acting governor of Texas for only one day. She was the first African American in the US Senate from Southern States in the period between 1973 and 1979. She gave two keynotes in 1976 and 1992, and additionally she even gave an introduction speech during the impeachment of Nixon.

  3. The correct answer is C. As president of the United States, Lyndon Johnson supported the Civil Rights and Voting Rights Acts.


    Lyndon Johnson was the 36th President of the United States from 1963 to 1969, a position he assumed after serving as the 37th Vice President from 1961 to 1963.

    Johnson took over the presidential post following the murder of John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963, terminated Kennedy's tenure and was elected president on his own merits after defeating Barry Goldwater in the 1966 presidential election by a wide margin. Johnson had strong support from the Democratic Party and as president he was responsible for the drafting of the Great Society legislation which included the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act, aimed at improving the civil and political rights of African Americans, as well as other laws that upheld public broadcasting, Medicare, Medicaid, environmental protection, education support and his "war on poverty".
