A, B, and D are the objectives the plan can achieve or fulfill so eliminate those.
E, I don't know. The argument didn't really mention anything about lively, well-written reading assignments.
But C is convincing. If the professors can edit out chapters in the book, then the textbooks of different university are actually all in different versions. Thus students nationwide cannot be uniformly exposed to a basic set of reading.

I would go with C.

If professor of each university edits the chapters according to his need then students nationwide will not be uniformly exposed to abasic set of readings. Hence C is the best choice

C.
This is a kind of question that you need to focus to find THAT 1 choice, not 4 other choices. Otherwise you will get confused.

I would go with C since it is the only one who is not supporting this idea.

Agree C. Because the professional can edit the text book, so students nationwide will not be uniformly exposed to abasic set of readings

agree with C. if professors alter the text books for their courses, students nationwide will have different reading material in each professor's course.
