Any suggestion please, why B is correct. Chose D on account of parallelism and sentence structure made more sense to me than B..

Option D is incorrect because "which" is referring back to "psychological dependence". It is not the "psychological dependence" that has the symptoms similar to those of narcotic dependence but rather, it is the cocaine itself. The symptoms of cocaine are similar to the symptoms of dependence on narcotics. Hence, why option B is correct!

csaluja

Wouldn't then be symptoms of cocaine=symptoms of narcotics

Dependence changes the meaning here to be narcotics addiction which should be same as addiction of cocaine

Is it not so?

Can you kindly resolve?

Thanks
