58. Adult survivors of child abuse traditionally have had little or no chance that they could get their symptoms recognized and treated.

(A) that they could get their symptoms recognized and treated-->could get does not go with the past construction.
(B) to recognize and treat their symptoms-->present tense so does not go with past have had...
(C) of getting their symptoms recognized and treated
(D) of recognizing and treating symptoms---> continuous does not go with have had..(past perfect)
(E) of getting his or her symptoms recognized and treated--->like D
Hence, only avl is C.. share OA and OE

Have had is not past perfect, but present perfect, so why is B incorrect?

C is very wordy since it is a passive voice with the verb "get"

Any more takers?

I think passive voice here is OK .. survivors can't treat symptoms themselves ...so these symptoms get treated.. based on this, the choice is between A and C..

I pick A .. ( don't know what is not correct in C ..)

I feel like there should be a "of" after chance to make it idiomatically correct.
E is out because of his or her.
D reads as if the survivors are doing the recognizing and treating.
C for correct idiom and for their.

I go with 'C'. I'm, too, of the view that the survivors cannot treat themselves.

OA and OE please.

I think B is not the answer because it should be to recognize and to treat their symptoms so I think C is best.

Adult survivors of child abuse traditionally have had little or no chance that they could get their symptoms recognized and treated.

(A) that they could get their symptoms recognized and treated
wordier construction than C

(B) to recognize and treat their symptoms

This suggests that Adult survivors recognize and treat their own symptoms. Out

(C) of getting their symptoms recognized and treated

Correct idiomatic use of chance of. Conveys the correct meaning

(D) of recognizing and treating symptoms
same problem as B

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

pronoun agreement error

I disagree with some of the explanations although the answer C is chosen correctly.
(A) - have chance that could get is incorrect. Chance of something is more idiomatic
(B) - AS can't treat their own symptoms
(C) - CORRECT
(D) - not clear of whose symptoms. lacks clarity
(E) - Adult survivors is PLURAL vs his/her is SINGULAR

C is best because survivors cannot recognize and treat their own symptoms. Also, symptoms cannot be treated. They can only be recognized.

"chance of" is the correct idiom.

C is the better options among all other options in respect of intended meaning intact. B and D are incorrect because they cant treat their own symptoms

Hi,
Patients are evaluated by Psychiatrist and treated. They can't do that to themself. So B is incorrect.

chance+that clause
dose appear in oxford dictionary online.

B can be wrong because
chance means: possibility
could means: possibility

so , there is redundance in b.

however, this question is not official, so, I think, we should not discuss this point more
