Outsiders in any field often believe that they can bring in fresh, useful solutions that have been overlooked by insiders. But in fact, attempts at creativity that are not grounded in relevant experience are futile. Problems can be solved only by people who really understand them, and no one gains such understanding without experience.

Which one of the following is most strongly supported by the information above?

(A) The more experience a person has in a field, the more creatively that person can solve problems in the field.
(B) Those people who are experienced in a field rarely overlook creative solutions.
(C) Creative solutions in a field always come from people with experience in that field.
(D) The experience required for effective problem-solving in a field does not vary depending on the field's complexity.
(E) Outsiders should be properly trained in a field before being given responsibility in that field.

C.....

But....i almost chose A. i discarded it because the stimulus does not connect 'more experience' leading to being 'more creative'

I discarded C due to the word "always" which generalizes the statement widely!

If passage is understood well we know that it boils down to choosing between A and C.
I also selected A at first, but soon realized it to be wrong because A tells us that more experience a person has more creative his solution to problem will be.
But, think of this.
If I have less experience in a field (say only know the definition and basics of that field). Then also I can come up with a solution of the problem. But it won't be as creative as the more experienced folks. But it will still be a solution.

Hence we can eliminate A, and C can be chosen as better answer than others.
Hence C

ravi546, Let's deep-dive!

Argument states:
    1) Outsiders in any field often believe that they can bring in fresh, useful solutions that have been overlooked by insiders.
      Outsiders believe they CAN bring CUS (creative useful solutions).
    2) But in fact, attempts at the creativity that are not grounded in relevant experience are futile.
      However, the author discards this view.
    3) Problems can be solved only by people who really understand them, and no one gains such an understanding without experience.
      He states that to bring a novel solution, one MUST have understanding, which comes through experience in that field.

Focus on what the author states:
    An experienced person is better suited to bring CUS (creative useful solutions) than an outsider ( NonExpPerson )
      because an experienced person understands the sitaution at hand through experience.

Answer choice analysis:
    Quote:
    (A) The more experience a person has in a field, the more creatively that person can solve problems in the field.
      It plays with probability, NOT certainty.
      The argument suggests: An ExpPerson is better than a NonExpPerson.
      Nowhere it states that higher the experience, more are the chances of creativity. - The proportionality is NEVER discussed.
    Quote:
    (B) Those people who are experienced in a field rarely overlook creative solutions.
      Went TOO far. The ExpPerson almost ALWAYS comes up with CUS (creative useful solutions). - A strong claim, which we CANNOT substantiate from the passage.
    Quote:
    (C) Creative solutions in a field always come from people with experience in that field.
      Aha! - Exactly what we thought!
      - Do not worry about the usage of "always". If a thought is coherent with the passage. one MUST not discard it immediately. Let's keep it.
    Quote:
    (D) The experience required for effective problem-solving in a field does not vary depending on the field's complexity.
      The perspective of whether the Experience varies with Field's complexity is OUT of scope.
    Quote:
    (E) Outsiders should be properly trained in a field before being given responsibility in that field.
      The perspective of whether the Outsiders should be trained ... is OUT of scope.
