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

"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" :wink:

I think it is E.
Through careful examination, competent diagnosis and successful treatment, physicians develop in their patients growing trust.

It is about parallel structures.

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.

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?
