hello every1 ,
why is it that one can't recognize the symptoms of the disease one is affected with . What if I am affected with the
same disease for the second time so that now I know what are its symptoms . Also If B is being discarded for the reason that you can't treat symptoms , then why C is being accepted .

of getting their symptoms recognized and treated

Isn't the above phrase also conveying that the symptoms are being treated . Someone please throw some light on this question.

In "C" anyone who has capability to recognize the symptoms is addressed, while in B it address only the adults recognizing their own symptoms.

Also in this specific context one can have only one childhood, and can be affected by child abuse in his/her adulthood only once.

I would love to go back to childhood if feasible

So, "chance to" and "chance of" are both correct idioms?

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.

All of the choices include treating symptoms...

The reason B is incorrect is because it changes the meaning of the sentence. It's supposed to say that the adult survivors get their symptoms recognized and treated by someone else (ie a doctor), while B says that they recognize and treat their symptoms on their own.

This is C. Because this sentence has to be passive. One cannot treat himself.

it has to be C..
treating Symptoms is awkward
survivors's pronoun reference is 'their',not 'his or her'

I would go with 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 [not good choice with respect to idiom usage.]
(B) to recognize and treat their symptoms. [recognized by others not themselves]
(C) of getting their symptoms recognized and treated. [Correct usage of the idiom; meaning is clear and concise too]
(D) of recognizing and treating symptoms. [idiom wise correct, of matches with choice;fails at meaning. It should mean recognized by others not themselves]
(E) of getting his or her symptoms recognized and treated. [use of his or her is not required.]

This is C.

B: have had little or no chance "to recognize and treat their symptoms"
- Doesn't make sense. were they strapped up or something? it changes the meaning from someone else recognizing and treating it.

It seems that C also talks about treating symptoms. C is correct, not B because we don't usually treat ourselves. We get treated by doctors...

after eliminating I narrowed down to B or C.
Now B sounds grammatically correct but it says that the survivors will treat themselves, which is wrong because someone else (a doctor) will treat the survivors.
So option C, mentioning 'getting treated', should be right.

Can anyone give the OA?
