I will post up the answers of these questions very soon.

The source is from a booklet of questions that I have (it just says booklet A & booklet B). They're from a USMLE Based question book and its quite old...from 2003 but it has some really good, thought provoking questions so I read them and if they're worth it I post them on here to share with you guys

The correct answer is D. Hip Fractures.

I think what you have to look at here is that it says "post menopausal women" ... Isn't osteoarthritis a more common problem in that AGE GROUP than osteoporosis? And with both of these problems they have higher risk of falls which lead to Hip Fractures.
