But the chief cause of that instability in the 1980s is resistance - the Gorbachev Doctrine, became necessary as the Brezhnev Doctrine failed because it met armed resistance. And that resistance drew strength and sustenance from the U.S., more precisely from the Reagan Doctrine, the American policy of supporting anti-Communist guerillas in the newest outposts of the Soviet empire; Afghanistan, Angola, Cambodia and Nicaragua.

It can be concluded that


Answer Choices :

(A) the Reagan Doctrine was the cause of instability in the communist Soviet empire.


(B) every doctrine meets resistance and therefore fails, implying that may be the doctrine was not sustainable in the first place.

(C) The Reagan Doctrine was responsible for Gorbachev's rise.

(D) Brezhnev's Doctrine was anti-US.

(E) (A) and (C).

Did you paste the entire paragraph? It looks like the beginning is missing...

I guess it IS an entire paragraph, huh?

Well, in that case, I would go with C...

Answer Choices :

RD only strengthened the resistance. We are not sure of the cause.

(B) every doctrine meets resistance and therefore fails, implying that may be the doctrine was not sustainable in the first place.

This is too general. And not relevant.

(C) The Reagan Doctrine was responsible for Gorbachev's rise.

Possibly.

(D) Brezhnev's Doctrine was anti-US.

We are not sure. BD could be anti to US friends. And so US intervened. Lets not bring in our history knowlege into CR. :wink:

(E) (A) and (C).

Not E for the above mentioned reasons.



I would go with C.

Thanks for posting nice questions :)

Explanatory Answer :

Resistance to Brezhnev's Doctrine drew 'strength and sustenance' from the Reagan Doctrine. (A) can be concluded since the Reagan Doctrine supporting destabilizing action in the Soviet Union Which consequently led to the rise of the Gorbachev Doctrine. (C) can be concluded. (B) is too general. (D) cannot be inferred from the information given. Hence, (C).

I am thinking that you mean "...Hence, (E)".

At first I vote (C), but I find (A) and (C) are at the same circumstance.
Hence (E)
