I vote for E.

"which" is ambiguous.

"their" in D is not clear either, does it refer to the patient or the analgesic.

I was between 'E' & 'C'

'E' the same reason as above but somehow 'for relieving' doesn't sound right to my ear, so I was wondering if it should be 'C' becos of 'to relieve severe pain'.

But finally I decided on 'E' too.

I will go with D on this

potential to is right idiom
potential for doesn't sound right

Well I dont know what to choose... A, B and C are wrong for the obvious reasons. Cant choose D because "they" is very ambiguous. Now , in E, there is this idiom problem... "potential to" is the right idiom.. not "pontential for"..... Im wondering if this question is good.

I'll select E.
In D, its not clear what 'they' refers to..whether psychological disturbances or the patients.
E is more clear.

Would you elaborate?
Is there anything wrong with:
