B is definitely the best answer of these options.

First, we can see that D is clearly wrong because a decade’s politics cannot be both extremely liberal and extremely conservative.

The 1920s marked, in the words of Warren Harding, a “return to normalcy.”  The US government pulled back from the incessant reforming of the progressive era.  This means that Option A is not correct.  Option C is not correct either.  The 1920s were dominated by three Republican presidents.  These presidents were all rather conservative with respect to the relationship between the government and the economy.  They tended to favor tax cuts and pro-business policies.  This makes B a much better option than C.
