Correct Answer:
(C) 36 inches of space between the ends of bars on two adjacent stations

Explanation:
You want to give your athletes enough room to move around the bench press station, so 36 inches between the ends of the bench press bars is adequate. If the ends of the bars are closer together than that, it would get a little tight when moving around the station. 24 or 36 inches between the padded benches would be too close together as the racked bars would be overlapping.
