It was also observed that teenagers who participated exclusively in sports showed the least signs of depression.

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.

So , there is definitely a correlation between depression and engagement in creative activities.
