Why C? i thought 'getting' is odd in that option and 'their' makes sense but still i didn't choose that option.BTW OA is C

logically you never recognize your own symptoms and treat them. Somebody, for instance, doctor does it for you.
that is why it is C

I am between B and C, but B sounds less wordy and better! So I think it is B

We are talking about something that had "little or no chance" of happening. So I don't think it would make sense to use past tense for the verbs "recognize and treat". Hence B.

What is the OA?

“his or her” doesn’t agree with "Adult survivors". Hence E is Out
Symptoms cannot be treated. People can be treated. Hence B and D are out
"little or no chance" clearly makes "could" unnecessary, because "little or no chance" leaves nothing to uncertainty, while "could" introduces probability.

(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.

C for me
First, no chance of is a correct idiom
Second, their clearly refer to survivors
Third, to recognize distorts the meaning - survivors are not the ones who recognize their symptoms.

Why not B?

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.

C is correct

because the symptoms must be recognized and treated By Someone(may a doctor or mama or dady)

Only "b" because it is not in passive form I think you all know that passive form is not acceptable in GMAT land.

Not B cos acc to me it changes the meaning of the original sentence.

C is correct.
B is incorrect because just ask this question: chance of what? rather than asking chance to what? We can easily deduce answer from this.

Its not B since in the given question 'get' is mentioned, hence it is suggested that recoginition and treatment of the symptoms might/will be done by others and not them. But if we go by B, this is not possible.

So i will go with C...can anybody tell what the correct answer is

@kirankp : getting has to be in the correct answer choice since we do not want to change the original meaning of the sentence. ANd in the original sentence it clearly mentions that the adult survivors have little chance to get their problems recognised.

B is incorrect because the survivors are not the ones recognizing and treating the symptoms. B would change the meaning of the sentence. The answer can only be C and there can't be any debate to that regard.
