Although critics of various beauty contests argue that such contests objectify women by judging them mostly on their physical appearance and not as much on other qualities they may possess, such contests are little different from any other competition; for instance, in various sports contests participants are judged mostly on their physical prowess than anything else. Therefore, in beauty competitions contestants can be judged on their physical beauty without implying that beauty is all that matters about anyone.

Which of the following can be concluded from the argument given above?

A. Competitions by nature lay stress on honing one particular quality of contestants.

B. While evaluating the contestants, every competition values certain criteria more than the other criteria.

C. Both beauty contests and sports competitions are unfair because they value very limited qualities in contestants.

D. Beauty contests are not unfair because although they mostly judge contestants on their physical appearance, they do judge contestants on various other qualities as well.

E. Beauty contests are similar to sports competitions in that both judge contestants on their physical prowess.
