Correct option is D)

The narrator's third-grade teacher was insistent on the students bringing a box to carry their experiment materials. She even cancelled the narrator's participation in the competition for failing to abide by this rule, although the experiment was accurate. On the other hand, she let the other white children bring the boxes the next day. Hence, Option D is correct.
The rest of the options are neither mentioned nor implied by the passage. Hence they're incorrect.
