I think the answer is C. The relation between Seed and Sprout is Sprout is always the next phase of the Seed and irreversible, so does the relation between dawn to morning.

For A, plant will grow or might be withered.
For B, garden is not necessary to weed.
For D, the direction is opposite, should be infant to teenager.
For E, trickle might to be downpour again.
