It was also observed that teenagers who participated exclusively in sports showed the least signs of depression. Although one cannot conclude from these results that depression is caused merely by participating in creative activities, there is definitely a correlation between depression and engagement in such activities as the study also showed that _____________________________________________________________________________

Good question!

The crux is to know your goal very well. " there is definitely a correlation between depression and engagement in such activities"- the correct asnwer choice has to illustrate this goal.
Option C says group(S+C) has same depression levels as group(C) has. Or you may say, whenever someone got engaged in creative activities, depression entailed.
So , there is definitely a correlation between depression and engagement in creative activities.
