The Correct Answer is A

Between 10% and 25% of children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) have specific learning disabilities or cognitive deficits (e.g., dyslexia) .The ratio of boys to girls with ADHD is 4: 1 in epidemiologic surveys and 9: 1 in clinical samples. Sixty-five percent of children with ADHD have at least one other psychiatric or behavioral disorder. There is no evidence that megavitamins or other alternative therapies provide any benefit in ADHD. Antisocial personality disorder develops during adolescence or adulthood in as many as 50%-80% of cases followed over time.
