Can some one explain why both is incorrect here and where can both be used?

yeh D should be it.

"both" is incorrect here because there can be only two places where we can place "both"

I'll try to explain it with the correct answer choice.

1.Jazz pianist and composer Thelonious Monk produced a body of work that was (both) rooted in the....Duke Ellington and (verb - ed) in .....

which doest make any sense

2.Jazz pianist and composer Thelonious Monk produced a body of work that was rooted (both) in the stride-piano tradition of Willie (The Lion) Smith and Duke Ellington and in (some other type of music)....

this also doesnt make sense as sentence is not trying to differentiate the type of music that Thelonious Monk produced.

I guess they introduced "both" in original sentence to confuse us in "Willie (The Lion) Smith and Duke Ellington"

hope it helps.
