We need to strengthen that public awareness campaign will be successful . Now the campaign is completely relying on the people awareness and pro-activeness of reporting the illness.

only B does that ..Anyhow( because of fear) people will report the illness .Govt plan will work ...

Imo B this is a very easy question
If people are afraid of the disease then they are going to report it.

E- During the first few hours of the disease, the symptoms of this disease cannot be diagnosed easily.

Conclusion : Government is launching public awareness campaign to contain the spread of disease.
Premise: disease spreads through contact and can have serious implications on health.

Gap: Government and people area aware of implications ?
or Government and people are determined to fight this situation.

A- Dengue flu worsens in a few days to an extent that the person needs to be hospitalized. Extreme statement. Moreover such fact is neither concluded nor mentioned in statement.
B- Most people are afraid of the disease and are motivated to limit the spread of the same. Correct Answer. Matches to gap identified above. People are aware and want to fight the situation.
C- The disease cannot be treated by over the counter medicine and requires prescription drugs. Out of scope.
D- The spread of the disease threatens Arizona's economy, which is manufacturing base that requires people to come in contact. Out of scope.
E- During the first few hours of the disease, the symptoms of this disease cannot be diagnosed easily. Weakening the statement.
