@Samir,

The answer requires us to find a value of the Hippocratic oath that should present no difficulty to most reformers. The author states in lines 47-50 "...the core value of beneficence - which does not actually conflict with most reformers' purposes - should be retained.." Beneficence is an ethical concept that states that the doctor's actions should benefit the patient, expressed in the answer choice (D).

Let me know if you have any other questions.
