Jill: It is immaterial when a person was born. good music is good no matter when it was created or whrn its fans were born.

This conversation offers the most support for the claim that Jack and Jill agree on which of the following statements:

a) Appreciation of great music is possible for people of all ages.
b) Great art trascends time
c) The Beatles´s career, although great, was tragically short
d) Beatle music is and was very good musi
e) Nostalgia is an important part of a band's reputation

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.

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.
