'Themselves ' is used to modify a plural noun, hence children is preferred. This is confirmed by usage of 'their adolescence'. So A and C out.

The word 'where' is used to modify a place, so D and E out.

I'll go with B.

Cheers!

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



This question looks complicated, but it is largely a question of sorting out very simple grammatical mistakes. If you say child, then everything has to be singular. If you say children, it has to be plural. All you are looking for is consistency of singular or plural forms. A doesn’t have it. It uses the singular ‘child’ and the plural ‘themselves’ and ‘their’. C also has a lack of agreement, this time between ‘child’ and ‘themselves’. D and E incorrectly use ‘families where’. ‘Where’ is used for locations. Therefore, choice B is the correct answer.
