i guess its D for parallelism...'ranged' and 'recomposed'

A n B says billie's approach is imitating so it is wrong..

I picked C....debated over C & D......i felt musicians played instruments will be more apprpriate than musicians use their instruments

It should be D.

Amit - We have repeatedly asked you not to put your views along with the question. Please let other people take a chance.

I agree that the underlining is not proper.
