Creativity must be cultivated. Artists, musicians, and writers all practice, consciously or unconsciously, interpreting the world from new and interesting viewpoints. A teacher can encourage his pupils to be creative by showing them different perspectives for viewing the significance of events in their daily lives. Which of the following, if true, would most undermine the author’s claim?

(A) In a well-ordered society, it is important to have some people who are not artists, musicians, or writers.
(B) A teacher’s efforts to show a pupil different perspectives may actually inhibit development of the student’s own creative process.
(C) Public education should stress practical skills, which will help a person get a good job, instead of creative thinking.
(D) Not all pupils have the same capacity for creative thought.
(E) Some artists, musicians, and writers “burn themselves out” at a very early age, producing a flurry of great works and then nothing after that.

Only B is relevant to the argument. Other choices are irrelevant.
