C is the answer. Right tense. And sentence structure.

there is no need to use between. do not combine difference with in or between. the usage of between is clear; it is used to refer choices between two things.

so if we think in this way, the simple question becomes unnecessary a difficult one.

go with A because we need plural verb "help" for plural subject "subtle differences".

C is passive and also has singular verb for the plural subject..

Thank you!

In order to use between, I think u should have a sentence which reads.....difference between x and y...

differnce in how sound is heard.....determines.....sounds good to me..

Professor's explanation is good.
Avis, I think what you said is right in the usage of "difference between" and "difference in".

'Subtle differences' needs a plural verb 'help'.

ears....help... (correct S-V agreement)

(A) is the most active (and concise) of the remaining choices.

I thini C is best.

Between is usllay used as, between x and Y.
Here the statement tells about the quality of sound, which can be judge in subtle differences in sound

I originally chose D, before reading the Professor's explanations. Good one Prof. The answer is as you mentioned - A.
