    Correct Answer
    D. Having academic support
    Explanation
    Having academic support does not help Wai Yhann to improve her game. This is because academic support focuses on providing assistance with her studies and educational needs, rather than directly enhancing her performance in the game. While it is important for athletes to maintain a balance between their academics and sports, academic support alone does not contribute to improving her game skills, physical fitness, mental strength, or nutritional needs.
