OE

If you chose (A), since “body’s” is in its possessive form, what follows must be a noun, not a verb “trying.”

If you chose (B), you may have been swayed by the parallelism of “face” and “deal” but remember that the possessive “body’s” must be followed by a noun. The “body” cannot possess a progressive verb. Furthermore, “deal with” and “face” convey the same meaning.

(C) is the correct response. This choice provides a noun for the possessive “body’s” and eliminates the redundancy created by the use of both “deal with” and “face” in the original sentence.

If you chose (D), while “attempt” provides a correct possessive noun for “body’s” the phrase “attempt to try to deal” is unnecessarily wordy and redundant.

If you chose (E), “attempt to try and deal” is unnecessarily redundant. Remember that “to attempt” and “to try” are synonyms.

A,B wrong. Body should require a main verb.trying is a participle.so sentence lacks main verb.
C correct. Brings in main verb attempt.
D,E attempt and try are same thing.redundant usage.

IMO C.
