e) obesity in children has escalated exponentially and is recognized daily as a real health threat

IMO B...Option A is incorrect because of "are"...In option E word "daily" is inappropriate...In option D "today" should be after verb(recognized)..And in option C error in tense.

So by POE B seems correct.

Hi mohit

My suggestion. Do NOT study this question. You couldn't find the OA on the web. Do not study questions from unknown sources. It is not worthwhile and may affect your knowledge.

According to Ron Purewal - a legend GMAT instructor, this question is very poor written.

Hope it helps.

I went with B too. But is "child obesity" the same as "obesity in children" ?

Hi eMJ,

I agree that this is a tough one. I see that someone mentioned that source of this question is the Economist GMAT Tutor, and I wanted to let you know that if you are signed up for the free trial, you can opt in for a (free) 1:1 strategy session with one of our experts. Just log into your account and then click on “schedule a strategy session.” From there you’ll be able to schedule a skype session with a tutor who will be able to guide you through all of your questions.

If you have any questions for me, feel free to let me know.

Regards,

Elizabeth
