Correct option is D)
Option D) Relieve individuals of much of the blame for problems in relationships is correct as it is stated that ' recognising gender differences' would free (relieve) individuals from the burden of an inappropriate sense of being at fault for chronic disagreements. The other options are wrong as in no way the recognized differences can cause the exaggeration of similarities, it would cause satisfaction; not dissatisfaction. the differences recognised are not of distinct social groups, and it can only state reasons. The correct answer is D) Relieve individuals of much of the blame for problems in relationships.
