Answer:

D. People became more skeptical about politics and less trusting of government.

Explanation:

Although Richard Nixon had several achievements during his term, he is, perhaps, best remembered for being accused of being involved in the Watergate Scandal. Such event was the scandal resulting from the arrest of five burglars in the office of the Democratic National Committee in June 1972 that were connected to President Nixon’s reelection campaign. The burglars had been caught wiretapping phones and stealing documents.

Afterward, the President came to be in trouble with justice for trying to cover the crime and the documents, so, in order to avoid impeachment, he soon decided to resign from office. These events, which were clear proof of the government's corruption, increased American's skepticism about politics and the government.

HI! The United States presidential election of 1980 featured a contest between incumbent Democrat Jimmy Carter and his Republican opponent, Ronald Reagan, as well as Republican Congressman John B. Anderson, who ran as an independent. Reagan, aided by the Iran hostage crisis and a worsening economy at home, won the election in a landslide. Carter, after defeating Ted Kennedy for the Democratic nomination, attacked Reagan as a dangerous right-wing radical. For his part, Reagan, the former Governor of California, repeatedly ridiculed Carter, and won a decisive victory; in the simultaneous Congressional elections, Republicans won control of the United States Senate for the first time in 28 years. This election marked the beginning of what is popularly called the "Reagan Revolution."

A major criticism of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's programs to combat the Great Depression was that these programs made people dependent on the federal government.

The program that President Franklin D. Roosevelt created was the "New Deal." He wanted to offer help to the people in need that had suffered the most due to the Great Depression. Between 1933 and 1936, he created a series of programs and legislation such as the Civil Works Administration, the Social Security Administration or the Farm Security Administration. However, many people criticized the programs because they thought that this help made people dependent on the federal government.

The Crusades increased the power of the Muslim empires. D. The Crusades increased the power of Constantinople. Thank you!

The Crusades increased Muslims’ distrust of Europeans.

Further Explanation:

It was the military expeditions at the start of the 11th century which were initiated by the western European Christians and that was done in response to the centuries of Muslim wars of expansion. The major objectives behind these military expeditions was to check on the spreading of Islam and to again retake the control over the Holy Land of eastern Mediterranean and to recapture the Christian dominated territories. They were seen by majority of the participants as they demanded redemption as well as expiation for the sins and faults they did.  

It all started in year 1095 as the first crusade took place in this year and by 1291, Latin Christians were removed from their kingdom in Syria. Even after 1291, the Crusades went on for several years but it started to decline during the 16th century with the initiation of Protestant Reformation. It also started to come to decline with the ending of the Papal authority.
