Which of the following best completes the passage?

A study released by a major medical center has found that people experiencing stroke are frequently not treated in time to prevent major complications, such as brain damage and paralysis, because they do not recognize the symptoms, which are similar to symptoms of heart attack but may pass more quickly. Additionally, since stroke damages the brain, many people are not able to recognize the symptoms themselves and must depend on the quick reactions of those around them. Doctors affiliated with the study hope that a stroke education program will


A. Explain the treatments available for stroke, so that victims and their families can make informed decisions.
B. Encourage members of the public to see stroke as a serious threat to their health
C. Shed light on the relationship between heart attack and stroke symptoms, since one is often confused with the other.
D. Raise awareness of stroke symptoms, so that victims and their families will recognize them and seek treatment more quickly.
E. Inform the public about risk factors for strokes, hopefully preventing a number of medical emergencies.

Official Solution:


Which of the following best completes the passage?

A study released by a major medical center has found that people experiencing stroke are frequently not treated in time to prevent major complications, such as brain damage and paralysis, because they do not recognize the symptoms, which are similar to symptoms of heart attack but may pass more quickly. Additionally, since stroke damages the brain, many people are not able to recognize the symptoms themselves and must depend on the quick reactions of those around them. Doctors affiliated with the study hope that a stroke education program will


A. Explain the treatments available for stroke, so that victims and their families can make informed decisions.
B. Encourage members of the public to see stroke as a serious threat to their health
C. Shed light on the relationship between heart attack and stroke symptoms, since one is often confused with the other.
D. Raise awareness of stroke symptoms, so that victims and their families will recognize them and seek treatment more quickly.
E. Inform the public about risk factors for strokes, hopefully preventing a number of medical emergencies.


Situation: A study has found that stroke victims frequently do not receive treatment in a timely manner.

Reasoning: Which point best states the goal of a stroke education program? The study found, not only that people do not receive treatment in a timely manner, but that they are delayed because they or those around them do not recognize their symptoms. The main concern of an education program, then, would be to help people recognize stroke symptoms so they can receive treatment quickly.
  1. This item is outside the scope of the passage, which does not discuss treatments for stroke.
  2. This concern is implied, but does not reach to the wider purpose of the passage.
  3. The two illnesses may share symptoms, but the passage is not concerned with this.
  4. This sentence correctly identifies the passage's concern with recognizing symptoms and having them treated in a timely manner in order to prevent major complications.
  5. This item is outside the scope of the passage, which does not discuss risk factors for stroke.

Answer: D

IMHO, (C) should be the correct answer & not (D) because:
Passage clearly mentions two facts:
1) since stroke damages the brain, many people are not able to recognize the symptoms themselves which is contradicting to what is written in (D) about raising awareness among victims, since it is of no use to victims then!
2) stroke are frequently not treated in time because they do not recognize the symptoms, which are similar to symptoms of heart attack Thus, information on the relationship is needed!
