The sentence begins using the idiom for comparison "as", which compares two clauses. We must find the answer that most appropriately compares the various languages contributing to English to x and maintains parallel structure.

We must look no further than A since it provides us with a logical comparison between the various languages and many traditions. Properly uses "Just as X...So is Y..."

B. compares the various languages to the coexistence

C. Unnecessarily awkward and uses passive voice

D. Does not maintain parallel structure and improper usage of the "Just as/so is"

E.This sentence is a fragment.

Please let me know if any of my arguments are incorrect!

A. so the many musical traditions coexisting in US culture create unlimited possibilities for the fusion of musical styles. --> correct: idiom is "just as ... so .."

B. similarly, the coexistence of many musical traditions in US culture create unlimited possibilities in the fusing of musical styles. --> missing "just as ... so .." idiom

C. the many musical traditions coexisting in US culture are creating unlimited possibilities in the musical styles' fusion. --> missing "just as ... so .." idiom

D. in the same way, possibilities for the fusion of musical styles are unlimited, owing to the many musical traditions that coexist in US culture --> missing "just as ... so .." idiom

E. so it is US culture, where the many coexistent musical traditions make it possible that unlimited fusion of musical styles may be created. --> "where" can't modify culture
