Tricky question.
I've firstly come up with three alternatives; A, B, and D. And I've identified two words from each person; appreciation / good music. A is not right because it's Jill's point only. D seems too general and is not quite in line with Jack's and Jill's. So I went to B.
I am always finding difficulties in selecting a right answer for this type of question...need to get improved...

A,

D is wrong, there is no support evidence suggests Jill thinks Beatles are good. On the other hand, both agree good music were appreciated by people of all ages.

IMO D.

first one: young crowd likes Beatles music even though they born after the beatles era.

second: good music will be loved regardless of how old it is...

so conclusion is: beatles music is good (satisfies both premises).

D: Torn between A and D but finally choose D cuz "Beatle music is and was very good music". Therefore many discerning fans of our generation have an appreciation for the music of Beatles.

I'm going with A. D is close too, but great group does not necessary equal good music

regardless of the correct answers beatles rock :)

let it be E here is why:

Jk says: Appreciation
Jl says: Good music

One can appreciate non "good music" but one can't say "good music" and not appreciate.
