Answer is D

Despite public belief, sucrose alone has notbeen determined to be a cause of problembehavior or increasing hyperactivity in children. Controlled, double-blind studies have not shown a difference in behavior measures, motor activity, or cognitive performance of children receiving sucrose compared to those receiving a control substance.
