Certian softball teams belong to a league made up of teams that include both men and women. The rules that govern the league stipulate that each team member must be treated equally, regardless of gender. For instance, if a man is given the position of pitcher in one game, in the next game, a woman must be given the position of pitcher, though either the man or the woman may be better qualified to be richer.

Which of the following questions would yield the answer most effective in evaluating the example the author gives to illustrate the term "treated equally"?

A How can giving two possible unequally qualified players equal access to a position be considered treating players equally?

B Why does the league use rules that stipulate each player must be treated equally?

C By using rules that stipulate equal treatment for players, does the league violate any rules of softball as it is played in other leagues?

D Does the league require each team to have equal numbers of male and female players?

E Which players are generally better qualified, men or women?

A is my choice

All other choices are evidently out of scope and do not help in establishing equality. The only choice which comes close is D.

But even if there are unequal number of m/f members in the team, the fact would not help much.

Tricky one, indeed. I feel it's A, but I'm not at all certain.
