To illustrate the pattern of reasoning in the stimulus, let's rearrange the premises and the conclusion:

TV gave rise to music videos
Music videos are art form
TV gave rise to art form

A -> B
B-> C
Therefore, A ->C

Let's compare it to (B):

Pound cake is lower in fat than avocados.
Avocados are fruit.
Pound cake is lower in fat than some fruit.

The pattern of reasoning is almost identical to the stimulus:

A-> B
B-> C
A -> some C

Hence, we can conclude that (B) most closely parallels the original.

Let me know if this makes sense and if you have any further questions.
