I think answer should be (D)

The original sentence has two unnecessary repitions for 'students' for 'sophomores and high school' , so we are looking for a sentence that does not have this repitition.

The only choice that I can think of is (D) but (E) is not the right one, because passive voice is not required here, the active one is fine.

MBA and Ghunoo are right..!

The correct response to this questions is (D).

The original sentence (A) misplaces the phrase "Even for high school freshmen and sophomores." Because this phrase is intended to modify "many students," the author should reconstruct the sentence so that the two phrases appear nearer to each other.

(B) is constructed in a way that confuses the sentence's meaning, as well as nonsensically equating "high school students" with "theories."

(C) inserts the modifying phrase "for many high school freshmen and sophomores" between two closely related ideas. The author should connect those ideas syntactically by moving the modifying phrase to either the beginning or the end of the sentence.

(D) moves the initial phrase to the end of the sentence, clarifying the sentence's meaning.

(E) employs improper diction. It is awkward to speak of a person's interest as "held in" a particular subject.
