Some of these choices are too nonsensical, even for a sentence about a song that... famously
doesn't make sense at all.
Take "mammal" for instance.
John Lennon was a mammal. Walruses are mammals.
But that's not exactly what we're going for here, so we can eliminate (E).
We can cross out (B), since "menagerie" is a fancy way of referring to a zoo.
We have to dig a little deeper to eliminate the remaining choices, since they're kind
of in the same ballpark.
The sentence makes a point of emphasizing the fact that Lennon could find inspiration
in basically anything.
So we're looking for a word that hints at the sheer randomness of the song.
"Culmination" describes a climactic point of something, so its connotations are just
too organized to fit here.
You could have a "collection" of random things, but it'd be weird to call a song
"Pastiche" refers to a confusing mix of things, both in art and in life, so (D) is the best
answer to this question.
D for "Don't worry, not even Lennon knew what "Coo coo ca choo" meant."
