I choose C as my answer. Here's why:

(A) Possible because professors would know what specifics that students need to learn the most.

(B) Possible because professors could be editing out vague details and replace them with a more detailed information for the students' benefit.

(C) CAN NOT BE POSSIBLE, because there are SO many professors nation wide. Each professor is different and may have different perceptions on what material is considered important for their students.

(D) Obviously possible because it's the teachers who are selecting what to edit and what not to edit.

(E) Possible because the teachers probably know what could entertain the students and what not based on their experience.


So the correct answer should be C

Another C. If the textbooks are edited, this will least likely meet the objective as defined in C.
