There probably is some correct answer on a test somewhere. Whatever it is though, I don't know. I picked B for what it's worth. But the point was not to get the right answer, the point was that there could be five right answers. There is a way that every single one of these options fails to fit the pattern, it's just a matter of how you think about it and how creative you can be with reasoning.
Life, especially life in the music industry, is like that too: there is no right answer. Sure you can spend the day reading biographies of the great record executives to learn how to become one yourself, but that doesn't mean their formula will work for you, because there is no formula. You have to get a little creative sometimes and learn to see things in a new way. Sometimes, you even have to learn to make your own "right" answer.
