"Best" is a word that has a very illusive meaning.
answer a is nuts, it does not help the weaker students, in fact, it does them harm.
answer b could be used, but you will never broaden the horizon on thinking skills and questioning.
answer c is likely to boring after the first meeting.
answer d is safe.
