I think the answer is c not b.

Gaurav said: (Sep 15, 2013)  
The answer should be B because here woman is acting like an adjective to the noun doctor so there is no need to use its plural form.

Ankit said: (Sep 21, 2013)  
I agree with @Gaurav, here singular form of woman should be used.

Abhishek Anand said: (Aug 10, 2014)  
Ya women as well as doctors both are plural both can't be at the same time in the same sentence.

Kundan Kumar Raj said: (Sep 7, 2016)  
Yes @Anand.

I agree with you. Because two plural form can't be together. So option either A or B correct.

Harshita said: (Sep 4, 2017)  
Yes, I too agree with Abhishek.

Anomies said: (Dec 22, 2018)  
Woman doctor is correct.

Praveen said: (Sep 17, 2020)  
Both plural can't be placed at the same time, here woman is acting as adjective.

When there is profession Like doctor, soldier, teacher. We make plural of both the words. Like men soldiers. Women doctors. Women soldiers. So, C is correct.
