i would go for B since it is mistake for (i think)
Doctors in the early twentieth century commonly mistook endometriosis as simple menstrual cramps and informed women that there was no medical cure for their condition
(A) endometriosis as simple menstrual cramps
(B) endometriosis for simple menstrual camps
(C) simple menstrual cramps for endometriosis
(D) endometriosis to be simple menstrual cramping
(E) endometriosis and simple menstrual cramps
SPOILER: OA (C). I guessed (B)
"As" cannot be used here becuz the comparison is not between actions. (A,D and E out).
"For" will do the job. B and C are close, we dont know, for sure, abt what doctors knew and what the dont! If they mistook endometriosis for cramps or vice versa.
But if we look closely then the presence of "commonly" may help us deciding what the doctors mistook. Women must be "commonly" complaining abt the cramps and doctors must have misunderstood it to be "endometriosis". I'm sure women cant be complaining about "endometriosis" (higly unlikely that most of the women knew this particular term).
The presence of "endometriosis" as a term implies that doctors must be familiar (or even may have coined this term) abt the conditions (symptoms) and they considered the cramps similar to "endometriosis" (similar symptoms or something). So they "mistook the cramps for endometriosis".
I somewhat agree with adlakha, but there is more room for discussion!
I'll agree with the OA (though i'm still a but confused).
I just pray that i dont get a question like this! Hey ppl if u've ever come across such a question, plz share ur thoughts/techniques/explanations, it'll be great help!!Thank you!
The second part is "informed women that there was no medical cure for their condition" tht says that they are talking about "endometriosis" and not "menstrual cramps" as it is describes as simple ..
Hence they mistook cramps for endo.... C it is
