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.

Praveen said:   3 years ago
Both plural can't be placed at the same time, here woman is acting as adjective.

Anomies said:   5 years ago
Woman doctor is correct.

Harshita said:   6 years ago

Yes @Anand.

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

Ya women as well as doctors both are plural both can't be at the same time in the same sentence.

I agree with @Gaurav, here singular form of woman should be used.

Gaurav said:   1 decade ago
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.

Himabala said:   1 decade ago
I think the answer is c not b.
