Error Analysis:

1. The correct idiom is "in conjunction with" and not "in conjunction of".

Process of Elimination:

A. Wrong. As explained above.
B. Wrong. "that" can not be used to modify people. It can only modify things.
C. Correct.
D. Wrong. Same errors as in option A and option B.
E. Wrong. "at the conjunction of" is incorrect idiom.

Conjunction indicates the kind of association, requiring "with".
Doctor is living specie, so use who instead of that, which is used for non-livings.

C should be correct choice.

Athletes who suffer from asthma need to work in the conjunction of a doctor who understands the disease and can design a proper training regimen.

A. to work in the conjunction of a doctor who
B. to work in conjunction with a doctor that
C. to work in conjunction with a doctor who
D. to work in conjunction of a doctor that
E. to work at the conjunction of a doctor who


Official Explanation



Correct Answer: C

The proper idiom is in conjunction with. Choices a and e are therefore incorrect. Choices b and d are incorrect because the pronoun who, not that, must be used to refer to doctor.
