I would like to discuss the LSAT maker's rationale under this question and its corresponding sentence (in line 30-31).

It seems obvious that in line 30-31 the reduced clause--"considered by programmers to be unimportant."--is to make the correct answer of Q4 more reasonable and obvious for test-takers.

But it looks to me that (E) still makes sense even if the reduced clause is scratched off.

If so, then what is the test maker's purpose to add the reduced clause? I would find it very surprising if the only purpose is to give us a head-up that soundtrack referred to in line 30 is intentionally emphasized.

How do you think? Any insights or comments would be very appreciated.
thanks.
