Re: Adult survivors of the child abuse traditionally have had [#permalink] New post 07 Mar 2012, 04:33
after eliminating I narrowed down to B or C.
Now B sounds grammatically correct but it says that the survivors will treat themselves, which is wrong because someone else (a doctor) will treat the survivors.
So option C, mentioning 'getting treated', should be right.

Can anyone give the OA? :roll:

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
(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.




Answer will be 'C'. 'their' refers to survivors and chance of getting the symptoms is the correct phrase

You have a 'chance of doing something' OR 'There are chances that this might happen'....... Idiomatic phrase

C

B is wrong because "to recognize" is not parallel to "treat" ..is the logic correct?

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 more concise choice provided in C, also C uses correct idiom.
(B) to recognize and treat their symptoms. INCORRECT - changes meaning - survivors dont have to recognzed, they nedd symptoms to be recognized by others
(C) of getting their symptoms recognized and treated. CORRECT - correct meaning, uses correct idiom - chance of and more concise than option A
(D) of recognizing and treating symptoms. INCORRECT - changes meaning - survivors don't have to recognize[color=#ff0000], they have to get it recognized
(E) of getting his or her symptoms recognized and treated. INCORRECT - his or her refers to singular subject while the subject is actually plural

"little or no chance" clearly makes "could" unnecessary, because "little or no chance" leaves nothing to uncertainty, while "could" introduces probability.

Answer should be C


Hi,

is n't " his / her " refers to each one of the adult survivors, which seems to be the real intention of author.

If we use " their " then will it not sounds like " capability of the group (Adults of child abuse) to recognize their symptoms " instead of each one of the members of the groups's capability the recognize his/her symptoms.?

I think its "E" . They have no chance of getting his / her (each one of their) symptoms recognized and treated. Please correct me if i am wrong.

Hi kabilank87,

Note that the pronoun "his/ her" is singular and needs a singular noun to agree with it.

Consider the examples below

The teacher asked each student to submit his/ her assignments --> Correct, his/ her refers to each student

The teacher asked each student to submit their assignments --> Incorrect, "their", a plural, refers to "each", singular

The teacher asked the students to submit their assignments --> Correct, "their" correctly refers to the plural noun "students"

The teacher asked the students to submit his/ her assignments --> Incorrect, "his/ her" is singular and can not refer to the plural "students"

In the question above the subject is "Adult survivors", which is a plural noun, so, the use of "their" is correct and his/ her is incorrect.

If we rephrase the sentence as -

Each adult survivor of the child abuse traditionally has had little or no chance of getting his/ her symptoms recognized and treated. --> Correct, singular noun - singular pronoun

Hope this helps,

Vercules

(D) of recognizing and treating symptoms.
(E) of getting his or her symptoms recognized and treated.


When we use infinitive I.e. "to recognise" as in option "B" then the subject or the doer must be clear. In this case it is not available. Hence between b and c , c wins,

Answer should be C


I agree B,D, E is out and C is the answer. But why A is incorrect. I found A has no problem, but redundancy.

Idiom - chance of is correct; chance for, chance to, chance that - is incorrect.
A out - Chance that is incorrect.
E out - It refers to Adult survivors - thus plural is required. His or her is singular.
B out - chance to is incorrect
D out - change of meaning. They are getting their symtoms recognized, not recozing it themselves.
C - correctly uses "chances of" idiom. And the use of "their" is plural.
