You don't have enough information to be able to determine specifically what they want, and in any case, the point of the sample is not to send what they want but to show what you can do.

The sample is used to determine that you have the basic skills and ability, and that there is reason to believe that you would benefit from the program.

Pick writing that you think is your best, that fits their criteria, and that shows what you're capable of writing.
