Since Jon’s range is so narrow, he will never be an outstanding vocalist.
The statement above is based on which of the following assumptions?
1) A person’s range is an important indicator of his probable success or failure as a professional musician.
2) It is possible for a singer, through study and practice, to expand the vocal range.
3) Vocalizing requires a range of at least two and one half octaves.
4) Very few people have vocal ranges sufficiently broad enough to permit them to be successful vocalist.
5) Physical characteristics affect how well one sings.

I went with A at first site, then on second reading -- It has to be D.

We are talking about assumption.

Folks, I understand that option A talks about "professional musician" which is not exactly "Vocalist" but I'm still not very convinced. Can someone pls illustrate?

Whats the OA btw?

IMO D.

Very few people have vocal ranges sufficiently broad enough to permit them to be successful vocalist. A succesful vocalist needs a broad range (range broad enough), John's range is not wide, therefore he would't be a succesful vocalist.
