I choose D.

Of the applicants who admitted to College, women are as many as or even fewer than men.

Close call between C and D.

Where C disproves one of the premises of the argument,D is in fact more of a conclusion rather than an assumption.

Instead of negating variance test supplies proper variables for D.

D indeed.

lesson : answer choice effecting the premise is a kind of incorrect answer choice.
