Hello @Kalyn-Mizelle,

This question is not asking about the author's attitude in general. Rather, the question is specifically about the author's attitude toward Toni Morrison's novel Jazz.

The quotation from answer choice A is from lines 8-10. Notice that the novel has not even been mentioned at this point in the passage. While answer choice A might reveal the author's respect for African American musical tradition, it has nothing to do with the novel in question.
