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.

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