2) D

The argument is that schools should revert to traditional sports days. The reason for this is that adult life involves competition.

A – Wrong
The text does not assume that children are not naturally competitive. It just says that they should let children be part of competitions to prepare them for adult life.

B – Wrong
This statement makes an unnecessary correlation between children losing races and being unsuccessful in adulthood. The text does not assume this at all.

Schools have introduced non competitive games to prevent damage to losers’ self-esteem. It does not necessarily assume that non-competitive games, however, will boost children’s self-esteem.

D – Correct
The text assumes that since sports days are competitive and adulthood is competitive, competitions in sports will help prepare children for adult life.
