Hi I am not an instructor but I will try to help. Please refer to the line reference above.

The line reference above states that the musical films of the 1930s are abnormal in that they include interluding scenes that don’t advance the main plot. This is exemplified in Busby Berkekeley’s musical film where he includes a shot of the singer’s face, which fills the screen and soon dissolves into a fanciful sequence consisting of various aerial views of city life. This scene does not contribute to the main story line.

E) shows a similar example. It is a novel that follows a protagonist through the events of a single day, and he pauses throughout the film for stylistically elaborate sections expressing his thoughts and fantasies. These pauses do not contribute to the main story line but are still included in the musical film. Thus E) is our answer.

I hope I explained it correctly. Please feel free to correct me. Thank you.
