i don't understand. In both cases the "problems" are receiving assessment or assessing. Are you saying only the question can be assessed?

Another way to remember this, is that between a noun and a gerund, with other things the same, always choose the noun........GMAT prefers the noun over the gerund

That's very good point!

I knew they did not like Having and such other introductory clauses (which I actually like) but I did not know the anti-gerund campaign.

A question that is irrelevant in <junk> is ..<blah blah>

its awkward in gmatland.

Another point worth noting here is:
the urban working poor

is plural.

B & E are out since they compare sigular (rural migrant worker) with plural.
