And here are the potential answers...
To answer this question, let's bust out our
process of elimination skills and get ready to rumble.
We can knock out (A) pretty easily just by taking a look at line 13.
The line makes it totally clear that Seattle grunge rockers were all about grounding their
noisy sound with heavy bass. Lines 15-17 make things particularly clear:
according to this jewel of a sentence, the musicians of the Seattle scene "scorned the
idea of selling out and overproduced pop sensibilities"...
So we can go ahead and eliminate (B), (C), and (E).
(D) is the correct answer, since the Seattle-ites didn't require expensive recording equipment...
Until they got signed by a major label, anyway.
