Most students like to read these kind of books during their spare time.

A) these kind of books
Wrong. [these + singular noun] --> wrong.

B) these kind of book
Wrong. Same error as in A. [these + singular noun] --> wrong.

C) this kind of book
Correct.

D) this kinds of books
Wrong. [this + plural noun] --> wrong.

E) those kinds of books
Wrong. That and those are often used with the 'there' to indicate that the object is away from the speaker. But we're actually talking about a particular kind of book that is near to us, not something away from us. Thus, E is wrong.

Hope it helps.
