My choice is E
A. implies that Thallius monk produced a body of work made of 2 parts
C sentence construction is awkward
D drops the word both from sentence

Between E and B, E is more precise and clear.

I would go with B. I think you need that...so E is out. But I agree...it's between B and E. Also, I don't like the way E begins...

I would go with D. "both" seems to have no proper referent here. C is an independent clause with no verb at all.

I would think the answer is E, looks cleaner.

Someone pl enlighten when we need to use "both." When there are two separate and distinct items?

D it is.

'Yet' signifies a contrast between two aspects of Monk's body of work-- so D is correct.

'Both' wouldn't work here because the sentence only refers to one thing that Thelonious Monk did, i.e. produced a body of work that was rooted in the stride-piano tradition of Willie (The Lion) Smith and Duke Ellington"[/i]

It is between C & D as both is misplaced here.

IMO C would be correct if the entire underlined clause was a subject what is not the case here.

D sounds better.
