Well I think D and E are wrong. The "careful examination, competent diagnosing and successful treatment" refers to the patients not physicans.

Examination, diagnosing and treatment is performed by a physician.....
Omit A and B....

C slightly changes the meaning of the sentence....

"180" buddy. Through = by = means of.

(D) identifies the correct modifier here.

(D)
(E) can never be the answer because you can "grow a developing trust". You cannot "develop a growing trust"

go for A,

Wud say E, for modifier and .llism, but "in their patients " spoils it. In A .llism is sploiled, though.

I would say (D)

Can't really explain, just sound right to me.

I think that "grow to trust" is the correct idiom. also diagnosis is a must for parallelism.

It's between C and E. In C, competent and successful diagnosing and treatment sounds awkward to me. I'll go for E.

The only reason I didn't choose D was that it appears to say Physicians help their patients grow

D. diagnosis and successful treatment, physicians help their patients grow to trust them

E. diagnosis and successful treatment, physicians develop in their patients growing trust

Diagnosis is a must for ||ism. Between D and E, I choose D.

"physicians help their patients grow to trust them" sounds awkward to me.
But it conveys that patients trust in physicians is growing which I feel is correct.

"physicians develop in their patients growing trust" stresses the Phyisician's development and not the patient's growing trust. Incorrect.

What is the OA?
