Would go with E, as it's interview screening tool to find out any issues in adolescent's life.
The points that need to be asked are: living condition, education, employment, sexuality, drugs, depression and suicide.

Answer is E
(E) The HEADSS inventory assists in the psychosocial evaluation of adolescents. Less “sensitive” questions are followed by more sensitive ones.

Examples of
home questions may include “Where do you live, how many siblings do you have?”
Education questions may include, “What is the best/worst part of school for you?”
Activities questions may include, “Do you play any sports or exercise?” as well as “What do you like to do with your friends?”
Questions about drugs may include, “Are you/your friends using tobacco, marijuana, alcohol, or other drugs?”
Sexuality questions may include, “Are any of your friends dating someone, and are they getting involved physically?”
Suicide/depression questions may include, “Are you happy with the way you look and feel?”
