A major objection raised by critics of the requirement to wear uniforms in schools is that by asking students to conform to a dress-code, the requirement in effect hampers their individuality, thereby significantly limiting their opportunities to express themselves. However, such critics fail to understand that the requirement actually benefits students as it can cultivate mutual respect and discipline in them. As regards individuality, studies have shown that the real outlets for students to express themselves in schools are _______.

Which of the following logically completes the above argument?

(A) platforms such as social-networking sites and autobiographical blogs.

(B) various out of school voluntary-work activities that showcase students’ individual interests.

(C) activities involving group work such as organizing sporting events, picnics etc.

(D) standardized school exams that are objective and hence, fair to all students.

(E) mediums such as their schoolwork involving creative writing, debates etc.

I was confused between C & E.
I chose Answer Choice E only because of Debates and Creative Writing(both being very closely related to academics and schools)
IMHO Answer Choice C is also good. Group activities can also cultivate mutual respect and discipline in students.

what do you guys have to say ?

"C" tells about group work, and "E" tells about individual work. So "E" expresses individuality.
