both vs Each sentence corrcetion [#permalink] New post 18 Jan 2014, 07:04
The complex tax dispute between the Covered Bridge Mall and Harris Township is not
likely to be adjudicated for several years, and in the meantime both sides are intent on
creating difficulties for the other
.
(A) both sides are intent on creating difficulties for the other
(B) both sides are intent on creating difficulties for each other
(C) each side is intent on creating difficulties for the another
(D) each side is intent on creating difficulties for one another
(E) the sides are both intent on creating difficulties for each other


Please suggest which is the correct answer and why?
Please also tell what is the mistake in other answer choices.
I selected B and it turns out answer is C. I don't understand why 'B' is wrong

More than happy to weigh in with some thoughts -- real quick clarifying question first, though. Is there a typo in your answer for 'c'? I'm sure it is supposed to read "for the other"? Can you clarify? Thanks in advance.

Did you have an opportunity to go back here and check versus your original? Just want to make sure we're operating from the right starting point.

Thanks! Hope your studies are going well.

Hi Brian,

Thanks for then reply,

I checked my source and there was no typo error in the question which I posted here. However, the original source, from where I picked this question, might be having that error. I still couldn't find the what is wrong with the answer choice I selected.

"Both" would imply that they are somehow acting jointly. "Each" is required to indicate that pain/grief that one plans to call for the other. Does that make sense?

Hi Brian,

Thanks again,

Yes, it does make sense, but only after you explained. :)
I couldn't think from this viewpoint, when I was solving the problem earlier by myself.

Not a problem -- if you haven't already done so, I'd encourage you to inform the original source that there's something out of sync with their example.

Best of luck!
