While answers A, B and C are all similar, only one answer is an absolute. This is mainly because how old or young someone is, is generally relative to an opinion. Some people may think that a 5 year old is young and some people may think that a 24 year old is not so young. The same theory can be used for answer "D". From a child's perspective a 24 year old can be young or old. Saying young or old to describe someone is not an absolute. The only absolute here is "C" ("Michael Drew comic art before he turned 25 years old"). In this example we are using numbers and time which are set and non negotiable.
