#Correct Answer: 3

Answer explanation hint –

The opening sentence gives out the main idea: “Parents in the U.K with children suffering from some potentially fatal genetic disease can heave a sigh of relief.” The next sentence ‘creating babies specifically to save older siblings” make it clearer. This is covered adequately in option (3). Option (1) is only about matching, not about ‘why’. Option (2) has elements not covered in the text. Option (4) brings in the extraneous ‘progress’.
