“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.

Answer should be C

Adult survivors of the child abuse traditionally have had little or no chance that they could get their symptoms recognized and treated.
(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.

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.

Thanks

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.

B is incorrect because 'chance to' is unidiomatic.

IMO C. What is OA?

Between A and C.

A is wordy. Plus "chance that" is unidiomatic.

C it is.

C for me.

"chance of" is the correct idiom.

"their" clearly refers to Adult survivors.

(D) of recognizing and treating symptoms.
(E) of getting his or her symptoms recognized and treated.


Hi Guys,

There are a couple of issues here, idioms among them. Your idiomatic uses of "chance" are the following:

Chance that: Ex. There is a chance that it will rain.
Chance of: Ex. There is a chance of rain.
To have a chance of: She has a chance of doing well.
Chance to: Have you had a chance (meaning an opportunity) to look at the file?
There is no idiom "have a chance that." E


A: You can have a "chance of" or a "chance to (meaning an opportunity to), but you cannot "have a chance that".

B. The intended meaning is NOT that people do not have the opportunity to recognize and treat their symptoms.

C. Correct: The people have not had the chance to get (someone) to recognize/treat their symptoms.

D. As others have noted, while there is no grammatical error, the meaning is incorrect, as people do not recognize and treat their own symptoms.

E. As has already been noted, "his" and "her" are singular pronouns, but the referent ("survivors") is plural.

I hope that helped.

Best,
Sarai

(A) that they could get their symptoms recognized and treated
wordier construction than C
(B) to recognize and treat their symptoms
This suggests that Adult survivors recognize and treat their own symptoms. Out
(C) of getting their symptoms recognized and treated
Correct idiomatic use of chance of. Conveys the correct meaning
(D) of recognizing and treating symptoms
same problem as B
(E) of getting his or her symptoms recognized and treated
pronoun agreement error


I disagree with some of the explanations although the answer C is chosen correctly.
(A) - have chance that could get is incorrect. Chance of something is more idiomatic
(B) - AS can't treat their own symptoms
(C) - CORRECT
(D) - not clear of whose symptoms. lacks clarity
(E) - Adult survivors is PLURAL vs his/her is SINGULAR

C is best because survivors cannot recognize and treat their own symptoms. Also, symptoms cannot be treated. They can only be recognized.

"chance of" is the correct idiom.
