Answer

Which program of social reforms did Lyndon B. Johnson initiate during his first year in office? D) The Great Society. Explanation: Lyndon B. Johnson's "Great Society" was a program of social reforms that aimed to end poverty and racial injustice. The President sought to transform the country through a series of important reforms, including the passage of the Civil Rights Act and a $10 billion reduction in taxes in 1964. This led to an increase in investment capital and personal consumption, which resulted in economic growth and a narrowed budget deficit.
