Which of the following best completes the argument above?

A
the number of students living in rural areas is likely to double in the next five years.
Slightly Out of Scope.

B
the number of students enrolling for regular classroom courses has been decreasing steadily.
This could be it but our argument is very limited in scope and it does not talk anything about No of students enrolled. so, Out of Scope.

C
the education ministry is planning to launch a promotional campaign for online courses.
Good for the ministry and good for the online courses but this doesn't help us because it does not solve the problems mentioned in the argument neither does it give us a valid reason to increase the number of online courses.

D
Demand for online courses is on the increase in urban areas.
Contender. Does not offer a very strong support but it is the best of all the answer choices.

E
Most of the available online courses offer visual interaction with teachers through video-conferencing, a feature appreciated by many students.
Out of Scope
