You are not vulnerable and playing pairs.

The quiz asks a different question about this hand, but my question is, how would you open this hand? How would you plan the bidding?
Open 1C and bid spades at my next turn, even if that means bidding 4S. 1C is not going to be passed out. Yes, opponents might preempt you but if you open 2C you preempt yourself. 2C - 2D - 3C - 3NT oops. Now we have to bid 4S to show our hand in an uncontested auction.
