Writing Question

<p>I need help with this question:</p>

<p>[Although aspirin irritates the stomach, it] can be avoided if the aspirin tablet is given a coating that will not dissolve until the tablet reaches the intestine. </p>

<p>A. the same
B. The irritation of the stomach caused by aspirin
C. The fact that aspirin causes irritation of the stomach
D. Aspirin causes stomach irritation, although it
E. Aspirin irritates the stomach, which</p>

<p>Im taking a wild guess but I think the answer is A.</p>

<p>Answer A has the "Although" in the statement which means the sentence is going to convey a solution to the problem. Kind of like "but."</p>

<p>B, what's the correct answer?</p>

<p>I say B.</p>

<p>A is not specific enough, what is the thing that can be avoided? is it the stomach that can be avoided or the aspirin that can be avoided? kinda vague. Whereas B, the "irritation" **of the stomach<a href="prep%20phrase">/b</a> caused by aspirin can be avoided . . . etc. </p>

<p>what's the correct answer?</p>

<p>I think it's B also.</p>

<p>The irritation can be avoided.</p>

<p>The answer isn't A, because "it" isn't defined. C is wordy. D has the same problem as A. B may be right, but seems off. My guess is E.</p>

<p>B for sure</p>

<p>i agree for b.</p>

<p>The correct answer is B.</p>


<p>A) asprin can be avoided? or stomach can be avoided? none works.
B) IRRITATION can be avoided.
C) Fact can be avoided if tablet is coated? Facts are facts.
D) Asprin can be avoided
E) Stomach can be avoided</p>
