Should be C

Because we should start with who is imitating , the option A and B are eliminated. Option D is wrong in it uses 'used' and E is wordy.

going with C here is why:

A and B are out because "Deliberately imitating" modifies jazz singer and not her approach

parallelism: BH approached singing blah blah blah and recomposed songs

D. Billie Holiday used her voice in the same way that other musicians use their
instruments, in that she ranged freely over the beat, flattening.
she ranged freely over the beat her voice ranged not Billie did

E. Billie Holiday approached singing by using her voice like other musicians
Instruments
, ranging freely over the beat, flattening.

D. Among C, D and E, only D uses "in the same way" correctly. C and E uses "like" incorrectly.

In answer choice C "like" is used correctly and I believe it is the correct answer.

To me it is D

A & B clearly have modifier issues.

C & E use like incorrectly and approached singing does not make sense. Note that C & E are also in passive voice compared with D

IMO D

Ranged & Recomposed are parallel. Modifier issue in A & B.

D for parallelism. 'Ranged' and 'composed'.

OA anyone?

Confused between C and D.
For me
D. Billie Holiday used her voice in the same way that other musicians use their
instruments, in that she ranged freely over the beat, flattening.
I like "in the same way" ... it refers clearly to "in that" (way)... "she ranged.. or her voice ranged"?

C. Billie Holiday approached singing by using her voice like other musicians
played instruments, ranging freely over the beat, flattening.
(musicians? instruments?)

Probably D.

Also, LIKE - for 'similar' items...

D
