    Correct Answer
    D. Because they tend to have more problems with authority and sticking with commitments
    Explanation
    The military tends to avoid taking students because they often struggle with authority and commitment. This is likely because students are still in the process of developing their independence and may have a harder time adapting to the strict discipline and structure of military life. Additionally, students may have other commitments such as education or part-time jobs that could interfere with their military duties. Therefore, the military prefers individuals who have already demonstrated the ability to follow orders and fulfill commitments.
