Hi Van7hu.

I'm afraid not.
The answer is given when you click on the submit button so you can see in what you have copied above that the answer was (c)

(a) would have been correct if the word 'up' wasn't in the sentence.

Hi, in dictionary phrase verbs there are 2 meanings with " Bring up"
1. If you bring somebody up, you raise them from childhood to young adulthood.

and the question in this case has mean that he grew up from the teaching of his parents.
2. to raise a new topic for discussion, or to mention a particular subject or issue in a conversation.
Ex: The boring meeting is going to stop, he brings a silly question up.
thanks for reading
hope the reply.

No, as was mentioned here it's not correct.
Although just "raised" would work (but it's not one of the options here)
