look at the underlined part and you see infinitive "to turn" thus choose the answer || to that infinitive.

B and E survive

E interrupst ||sm by omitting "to" as other infinitives

"putting the news coverage into perspective" is a modifying phrase and B survives

B

psychologists advise parents to do X,.......do Y, and do Z.
down to B and E.

Now if we use "put" then we must use "to put".

Answer: (2)putting the news coverage into perspective, to avoid

This sentence requires ||ism.

"to discuss"
"to avoid"

putting is necessary.. otherwise should be "to put".

Therefore (2).
