the OA here is C. Can anyone explain what's the idiom tested here? if not idiom, then what am i missing here? cause i also chose B for this question and can't see what's really wrong with option B. also, what is so right about option C?

It is purely based on the tense usage...

If it is a hypothesis - a generic statement then I would go for 'B'

But the fact that it included 'have had' I was looking at 'C' as well.

Adult survivors of child abuse traditionally do not or did not have a chance to recognize and treat their symptoms. - option 'B'

Adult survivors of child abuse traditionally have had little or no chance of getting their symptoms recognized and treated. - option 'C'

B suggests that survivors themselves recognize and treat. However, logically you would expect a doctor/therapist to recognize and treat. Hence, C is correct.

(E) of getting his or her symptoms recognized and treated




Please explain your answer



(A) is wrong because of :

"that they"

get their X and Y

X= symptoms recognized
Y=treated

Does not make clear that their symptoms are to to be recognized and then treated.

If there is some other grammatical mistake please help!!!

(B) Concise, Clear and makes no mistake

(C) Continuos tense.., "getting" is unnecessary

(D) Same as C

(E) his/ her is not needed. Plural "their" is needed, because survivors is plural subject.


Thus "B"

I think you have a point here . C should be correct . B is trap here because it sounds good .

chance to ....is not a correct idion
chance of ..is correct
To me, *chance of * sounds better than *chance to*.
So, C.

I don't think that idioms is being tested here.

I think that both 'change to' & 'chance of' are correct.

However, B changes the meaning of the original sentence - it makes it sound as if the patients are treating their symptoms themselves while the original sentence clearly indicates that the symptoms are treated by someone else. Hence, a shift of meaning in B.

C is correct.
