The correct answer choice is (E). We want to start here by thinking through what the author's argument is about modifications of film for distribution. The author believes that any modifications to the film are harmful. Specifically, the author talks about how dubbing, changing the speed, and commercial interruptions as some of the possible ways in which a film can be altered from its original form.
Answer choice (A):
Answer choice (B): Answer choice (B) doesn't help our argument at all. The author is trying to say that the alterations made are important, and impact the integrity of the film. Answer choice (B) says that the mass market technology for adjusting films for TV has changed to better reflect the original intent. That doesn't support the author's position that the alterations are against the original integrity of the film.
Answer choice (C):
Answer choice (D):
Answer choice (E): This is the correct answer choice. We want to support the idea that these alterations hurt the integrity of the film. Answer choice (E) does that by giving us a reason that one of the potential alterations (talking over parts of the soundtrack) hurt the integrity because all parts of the soundtrack are important. If all parts of the soundtrack are purposeful, talking over the soundtrack would hurt the integrity of the film.
