The song opens with three drummers tappingtheir panderos. Two smaller hand drums—thesegundo and the requinto—weave in and out of thatbeat. Each pandero adds a layer to the complex, syncopated rhythm I immediately recognize as thatof plena music. A maraca and an accordion chimein and are soon joined by the ratchet-like scrape of the güiro. Next, the singers pipe up, onecalling and two others responding in a playful chant. As the music builds to a crescendo, Idetect a twist on the traditional Puerto Rican folk style: a trombone bursts in and then aclarinet. They add an element of big band jazz. Underneath the fused musical styles, though, the classic plena rhythm, propelled by the panderos, beats on.
The writer wants to add the following sentence to the paragraph.

To make the paragraph most logical, the sentence should be placed _________

B.after sentence 1.
C.after sentence 3.
D.after sentence 8.
Choice B is the best answer because it results in the most logical sequence. It makes sense to introduce the three drummers first and then include the detail about the largest of three drums between the introduction and the details provided about the other two, smaller drums.
