Thanks for posting this question..

This drug ad question is bothering me very much..I could not answer a single one un UW..

Its taking a lot of time in exam..I was planning to skip that...

What i understand in these type is to concentrate on graphs and the bar diagram..

Here is bar diagram is given for symptom control so answer i thing among the choice is C.good symptom control with 6 weeks of treatment

Please correct if I am wrong...

Sorry, can't read the values.
But the trick to solving these type of questions is to focus on the statistics like hazard ratio, p value along with the CI--whichever is significant.
