C for me

- "have had little or no chance + that" doesn't seem correct, not idiomatic -> no A
- it is the symptoms that need to be recognized and treated, not the adult survivors. And the Survivors are not the subject of this action, they should not be recognizing anything. no B, no D

Still C and E, but we can see that E is definitely wordy as we don't need to specifiy "his-her"

I consider between choice C and E. Finally I chose C because of suject- verb agreement. We can't use singular pronoun here coz the subject
"adult survivors" are plural

C should be the answer 'coz 'chance...of getting' should be the right usage. Hence, the final options boil down to C and E out of which E is wrong 'coz it refers to a singular subject where as the original passage has a plural.
