Finally, the general pattern of school organization (by which I mean the relations of pupils to one another and to the teachers) constitutes the school a kind of institution sharply marked off from other social institutions. Call up in imagination the ordinary schoolroom, its time-schedules, schemes of classification, of examination and promotion, of rules of order, and I think you will grasp what is meant by “pattern of organization.” If then you contrast this scene with what goes on in the family, for example, you will appreciate what is meant by the school being a kind of institution sharply marked off from any other form of social organization.

Which one of the following is NOT suggested as a possible feature of the ‘general pattern of school organization’? (a) timetables (b) examinations (c) school uniform (d) school rules (e) a set curriculum
I struggle with the abstract notions in the quote, so would someone please explain how to apply them to the choices? What do rules of order, schemes of classification mean? They sound hazy and vague.
2. Isn't (c) a rule of order, because school uniforms maintain order? (c)'s the right answer. Also, (d) says rules so I think this is why it's wrong.
3. Isn't (e) a scheme of classification? I picked this but this is wrong.
Despite my primitive English, the passage does state (a) and (b), thus they aren't the answers.
