The best jazz singers use their voices much as horn players use their instruments. The great Billie Holiday thought of her singing voice as a horn, reshaping melody and words to increase their impact. Conversely, jazz horn players achieve their distinctive sounds by emulating the spontaneous twists and turns of an impassioned voice. So jazz consists largely of voicelike horns and hornlike voices.

Which one of the following most accurately describes the role played in the argument by the claim that the best jazz singers use their voices much as horn players use their instruments?
(A) It is the argument’s main conclusion and is supported by another statement, which is itself supported by a further statement.
(B) It is the argument’s only conclusion, and each of the other statements in the argument is used to support it.
(C) It is a statement for which some evidence is provided and which in turn is used to provide support for the argument’s main conclusion.
(D) It is a statement for which no evidence is provided but which itself is used to support the argument’s only conclusion.
(E) It is a statement used to support a conclusion that in turn is used to support the argument’s main conclusion.

We can breakdown the stimulus to below:

Statement --> The best jazz singers use their voices much as horn players use their instruments.
Evidence/Fact to support the previous statement --> The great Billie Holiday thought of her singing voice as a horn, reshaping melody and words to increase their impact.
Supporting statement --> Conversely, jazz horn players achieve their distinctive sounds by emulating the spontaneous twists and turns of an impassioned voice.
Main Conclusion --> So jazz consists largely of voicelike horns and hornlike voices.

From the above we can see only the C can be correct.
