Which statements is true of the presidential elections of 1980 and 1984?

That depends entirely on the statements in question.

Were the business Tycoons of the Early 20th century Robber Barons or Philanthropists?

Actually, some were a little bit of both. The term "robber barons" has been used a number of times in history to describe powerful businessmen who earned huge fortunes while exploiting their workers and caring only about making more money. It is true that some of the "captains of industry" of the late 1800s and early 1900s probably did fit this description. But not all of them did. In fact, it's difficult to say that every one of the so-called "robber barons" was either all good or all bad, because most human beings are more nuanced than that. Plus, even the most driven and callous business leader may decide to change. A good example is Andrew Carnegie, who was one of the world's wealthiest men, thanks to his dominance in the steel industry. But while he was accused by critics of treating his workers harshly, he ultimately decided to dedicate his life entirely to philanthropy. He became legendary for his support of public libraries, museums, and organizations that advocated for peace. he even wrote a book that said the wealthiest business leaders had a duty to use their influence to improve society.
