Commentator: While distributing academic scholarship, sources are always cited, and the means and ways and requirements for the same are well-stated so that the selection can be made easier and convinient. This can be well understood through the example of open source software where the code of program can be changed as per the will of individual and no fees is required to be paid to the software producer. On the other hand, proprietary software is the sole property of producer and it can be changed only by paying the producer. This shows that open-source software better matches the values embodied in academic scholarship, and since scholarship is central to the mission of universities, universities should use only open-source software.

Which of the following principles conforms to the commentator's reasoning most closely?


A. Whatever software tools are most advanced and can achieve the goals of academic scholarship are the ones that should alone be used in universities.

B. Universities should use the type of software technology that is least expensive, as long as that type of software technology is adequate for the purposes of academic scholarship.

C. Universities should choose the type of software technology that best matches the values embodied in the activities that are central to the mission of universities.

D. The form of software technology that best matches the values embodied in the activities that are central to the mission of universities is the most efficient form of software technology that the universities must use.

E. A university should not pursue any activity that would block the achievement of the goals of academic scholarship at that university.
