A. are between the most common childhood health complaints, yet this problem gets surprisingly little attention from ----- are between is wrong; are among is right.


B. are among the most common childhood health complaints, and this problem gets surprisingly little attention from ------- and this problem is wrong. We need a contrast conjunction here.


C. are among the most common childhood health complaints, yet this problem gets surprisingly little attention from ---best choice among the lot

D. are among the most common childhood health complaints, yet this problem is getting surprisingly little attention of --- attention of is unidiomatic [/color]

E. are among the most common childhood health complaints, this problem getting surprisingly little attention from---contrast conjunction missing.

Overall, 'this problem' should have been 'these problems', because there are two maladies mentioned in the original. But none of the choices exhibits it. . So, we can ignore it.

C is the best choice as it uses "among" correctly and "yet" showing proper contrast.

A. are between the most common childhood health complaints, yet this problem gets surprisingly little attention from "between" incorrect.

B. are among the most common childhood health complaints, and this problem gets surprisingly little attention from We need a contrast such as "yet"; "and" doesnt bring in that contrast

C. are among the most common childhood health complaints, yet this problem gets surprisingly little attention from Correct. "among", "yet", correct tense (simple present) fora rule.

D. are among the most common childhood health complaints, yet this problem is getting surprisingly little attention of"is getting" present continuo, looks awkward here."attention from" is correct here

E. are among the most common childhood health complaints, this problem getting surprisingly little attention from No connector. Run on. "getting" is not a bonafide verb.The part after the comma hence looks as if it is an adverbial modifier of the first part.

I need a clarification here. Migraines and headaches are 2 problems. So in the last clause, shouldn't it be "these problems"?

Although I feel the sentence is unclear, what I could make out is it refers to the complain of migraines and headaches in the second part. Headaches and migraines are common but they form a single problem.
Anyways, as long as you can find a better solution (than others) on SC, you are fine. Sometimes, it is used as ploy. Students keep on checking for this error and waste time when they should rather select best and move on
