The author of passage B, in the second sentence, says that "the former" is sometimes called "singer's opera". So we need to look at the list of two things mentioned earlier, and look at the first of the two elements on that list. That's in the first sentence, and is "that in which the music is primary". So music is primary = singer's opera. Thus, non-musical elements are not primary, which is where answer choice (E) comes from.
