Deliberately imitating the technique of Louis Armstrong, jazz singer Billie Holiday’s approach to singing was to use her voice like an instrument, in that she ranged freely over the beat, flattened out the melodic contours of tunes, and, in effect, recomposed songs to suit her range, style, and artistic sensibilities.

A. Billie Holiday’s approach to singing was to use her voice like an instrument, in that she ranged freely over the beat, flattened.
B. Billie Holiday’s approach to singing was to use her voice in a similar way to how other musicians play instruments, in ranging freely over the beat, flattening.
C. Billie Holiday approached singing by using her voice like other musicians played instruments, ranging freely over the beat, flattening.
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.
E. Billie Holiday approached singing by using her voice like other musicians Instruments, ranging freely over the beat, flattening.

I picked C....debated over C & D......i felt musicians played instruments will be more apprpriate than musicians use their instruments

i guess its D for parallelism...'ranged' and 'recomposed'

A n B says billie's approach is imitating so it is wrong..
in C n E parallelism in not maintained 'ranging' ...'recomposed'

It should be D.

Amit - We have repeatedly asked you not to put your views along with the question. Please let other people take a chance.

I agree that the underlining is not proper.
