After graduating form high school, people rarely
multiply fractions or discuss ancient Rome, but they
are confronted daily with decisions relating to home
economics. Yet whereas mathematics and history are
required courses in the high school curriculum, home
economics is only an elective, and few students choose to take it.

Which of the following positions would be best
supported by the considerations above?
(A) If mathematics and history were not required
courses, few students would choose to take them.
(B) Whereas home economics would be the most
useful subject for people facing the decisions
they must make in daily life, often mathematics
and history can also help them face these decisions.
(C) If it is important to teach high school students
subjects that relate to decisions that will
confront them in their daily lives, then home
economics should be made an important part
of the high school curriculum.
(D) Mathematics, history, and other courses that
are not directly relevant to a person's daily
life should not be a required part of the high
school curriculum.
(E) Unless high schools put more emphasis on
people graduating from high school will
never feel comfortable about making the
decisions that will confront them in their
daily lives.

Well, I think it's C.
The main idea of author's message is a contrast between required courses/concepts rarely used in everyday life and home economisc, which is an elective but often addressed in everyday life. In my opinion choice C could be a logical continuation of his claim.
