This question is asking for an example of a life-history, which are more personal, individual narratives, and a life-passage, which deal with organizations/societies more broadly. The issue with answer choice (D) is that both its examples deal with society more broadly, which jibes with the definition of life-passages given in paragraph 1: they “emphasize the requirements of society, showing how groups socialize and enculturate their young in order to make them into viable members of society."
Contrast this with (C), which contains an example of a life passage (the description of training and maintaining discipline within the military organization) and an example of a life-history (the soldier's individual narrative about his personal reaction to military life).
Hope this clears things up!
