The phrase "War on Poverty" is not an official name, but rather an unofficial one, and it was used to mean that people will try to diminish poverty in the United States. In order to achieve this goal, the  Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO)  was created - so the correct answer is d). This office was transferred to another department in 1981.
