B. that they are twice as likely as White women to get osteoarthritis of the knee
C. that their likelihood of getting osteoarthritis of the knee is twice as much as White women
D. of being twice as likely as White women to get osteoarthritis of the knee

it takes me a long time to find out why d is wrong

advise sb doing somthing : you should do something
advise sb of something: inform you something, differentt meaning

D is not idomatic simply. but the idiom tested in d is rarely used.

this problem test rarely used idiom . this is not phylosophy of gmat sc. BAD QUESTION
