==============================================
C or E ..I would go with C on exam day; but I can bet some money on E 2!
how can E be wrong -looks OK to me ..But, as we need to pick the best answer, I would go with C for the simple reason that it makes a strong and vivid statement compared to E which is too bland...will wait for the OA

Well crushed strawberries would be more meaningful for taking bath....
So E can be ruled out when you have other options as given in this question.

E as it appears is different from others i.e.
milk vs cold milk
straberries vs crushed strawberries
cavier vs black cavier (BTW I thought cavier is always black!)

C.

C is the most precise and still keeps the meaning of the original sentence
