    Explanation
    Cutaway shots are used in film and video editing to show a different angle or perspective of a scene. They are typically used to provide additional context or to emphasize a specific detail. In the context of cover shots that go jump cuts, a cutaway shot would be a suitable term. This is because jump cuts involve abrupt transitions between shots, and using a cutaway shot can help smooth out the visual flow and maintain continuity.

    B. Jump Cut
    Explanation
    A jump cut refers to a cut in film editing where there is a sudden jump in time or space, resulting in a noticeable discontinuity. It is often used to create a jarring effect or to compress time. In this context, a jump cut can be seen as a cut between slightly different angles of a single subject, as it creates a visual disruption in the continuity of the shot.

      Cutaway

    Correct Answer
    C. B-Roll
    Explanation
    B-Roll is the correct answer because it refers to supplementary footage that is used to enhance the primary footage. It is usually shot separately from the main footage and can include additional angles, close-ups, or establishing shots. B-Roll is often used to provide context, cover edits, or add visual interest to a video. Unlike the primary footage, B-Roll is not the main focus of the scene but rather supports and complements it.
