play with is correct than played with. So C and E are out.
"will Experience" in A and C are future tense, that are not required. So I would go with B.

Only D use correct if- clause and adverb " quickly" after verb " develop".

A tough one. I will have to go for B, because in D will experience is wrong and it doesn't use 'will' for develop.

I will choose D.

There is nothing wrong with will.

Firstly, C and E are out as 'played' is the wrong tense. A is out as 'than' does not compare the effects on children who play with other children with the effects on children who do not play with others.

Finally, D is out. The use of 'they will' suggests the effect is very likely possible, but not definite. B is better by doing away with 'will'. Also, in D, 'quickly socially' is awkward.

B is the best chioce.

B for me as well...

first of we dont need "will/would" since its already implied..classic if then statment...

now in D, quickly seems to be modifying socially (its an adverb, quickly that is...) so i think I will go with B which is more precise...

only D uses the present form of conditional if ..... will and does the comparison correctly.

Between B and D, I will choose D.

I think 'will' is needed to stress that 'experience' will happen in the future.

Vote for D -

"develop quicker socially"

in "develop more quickly socially" Adverb usage - more quickly hence , is better
