There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
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 (B) to recognize and treat their symptoms. (C) of getting their symptoms recognized and treated. (D) of recognizing and treating symptoms. (E) of getting his or her symptoms recognized and treated.
There are a couple of issues here, idioms among them. Your idiomatic uses of "chance" are the following:
Chance that: Ex. There is a chance that it will rain. Chance of: Ex. There is a chance of rain. To have a chance of: She has a chance of doing well. Chance to: Have you had a chance (meaning an opportunity) to look at the file? There is no idiom "have a chance that." E
A: You can have a "chance of" or a "chance to (meaning an opportunity to), but you cannot "have a chance that".
B. The intended meaning is NOT that people do not have the opportunity to recognize and treat their symptoms.
C. Correct: The people have not had the chance to get (someone) to recognize/treat their symptoms.
D. As others have noted, while there is no grammatical error, the meaning is incorrect, as people do not recognize and treat their own symptoms.
E. As has already been noted, "his" and "her" are singular pronouns, but the referent ("survivors") is plural.
hello every1 , why is it that one can't recognize the symptoms of the disease one is affected with . What if I am affected with the same disease for the second time so that now I know what are its symptoms . Also If B is being discarded for the reason that you can't treat symptoms , then why C is being accepted .
of getting their symptoms recognized and treated
Isn't the above phrase also conveying that the symptoms are being treated . Someone please throw some light on this question.
Because B is "to recognize and treat their symptoms".
Do we really TREAT symptoms? We treat diseases. Symptoms tell us what disease is the person suffering from. I can treat disease. Not the symptom.
P.S.: I would go for C.
All of the choices include treating symptoms...
The reason B is incorrect is because it changes the meaning of the sentence. It's supposed to say that the adult survivors get their symptoms recognized and treated by someone else (ie a doctor), while B says that they recognize and treat their symptoms on their own.
Adult survivors of the 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 [not good choice with respect to idiom usage.] (B) to recognize and treat their symptoms. [recognized by others not themselves] (C) of getting their symptoms recognized and treated. [Correct usage of the idiom; meaning is clear and concise too] (D) of recognizing and treating symptoms. [idiom wise correct, of matches with choice;fails at meaning. It should mean recognized by others not themselves] (E) of getting his or her symptoms recognized and treated. [use of his or her is not required.] _________________
