Pettengill: Bebop Jazz musicians showed their distaste for Jazz classics by taking great liberties with them, as though the songs could be made interesting only through radical reshaping.

Romney: Only compelling, versatile songs can understand such radical reshaping. Bebop musicians recognized this, and their revolutionary approach to the jazz classics enabled them to discover previously unknown depth in the music.

Pettengill and Romney disagree over whether
(A) Bebop jazz was radically different from the jazz music that preceded it
(B) Bebop jazz was an improvement on the jazz classics that preceded it
(C) Bebop jazz showed appreciation for jazz classics in radically reshaping them
(D) Jazz musicians requires musicians to adhere closely to the original version in order to be widely popular
(E) Bebop jazz were influenced by the more conservative styles of their predecessors

The Answer is C IMO.

A - The argument doesn’t imply the music was radically different, but seems like a good trap Answer.
B - Neither of the 2 mention music was better.
C - P says they showed distaste by reshaping jazz, but R says they understood the versatility and that’s why they reshaped it. Sounds correct.
D - This wasn’t mentioned in the argument.
E - Irrelevant.
