People who listen to certain recordings of music are in danger of being unduly influenced by spoken messages that have been recorded backwards on the records or tapes.
A consequence of the view above is that
(A) the spoken messages must be louder than the music on the recordings
(B) backwards messages can be added to a recording while still preserving all of the musical qualities of the recorded performance
(C) the recordings on which such messages appear are chosen for this purpose either because they are especially popular or because they introduce a trancelike state
(D) if such messages must be comprehended to exert influence, then people must be able to comprehend spoken messages recorded backwards
(E) when people listen to recorded music, they pay full attention to the music as it plays

D, people are 'in danger' if and only if the people can understand the message.

(A) the spoken messages must be louder than the music on the recordings [not necessarily]
(B) backwards messages can be added to a recording while still preserving all of the musical qualities of the recorded performance [off topic]
(C) the recordings on which such messages appear are chosen for this purpose either because they are especially popular or because they introduce a trancelike state [too extreme]
(D) if such messages must be comprehended to exert influence, then people must be able to comprehend spoken messages recorded backwards [on first glance, this works best for me]
(E) when people listen to recorded music, they pay full attention to the music as it plays [not necessarily - one can be influenced while not paying attention]

"Consequence of the view" may imply an assumption question twisted inwards or an inference that can be made using the argument.

If people are unduly influenced by the messages recorded backwards, that must mean that they can understand messages recorded backwards. This leads to D. Hope this helps.
