i got for D. If ticker faction wins, nation will suffer economically. but, if nationa suffers economically, it is possible that this is due to tucker faction but we can't be certain.

A->B

If B, then may be A.

I got D. It explicitly states if Tucker win then nation will suffer militarily but it doesn't say if Perry wins, the nation cannot suffer militarily...

Hey good question,
Answer should be "D".
A caused B. does not mean presence of "B" means it is by "A" only.

:btw whats the OA ?

I would go with C. It follows quite immediately from the stem. Either one or the other will win, and no one else, and not both. And we know what the consequences of each one's win are.

D looks good.

T is a sufficient condition for military suffering but there is no indication that it is a necessary condition (alternatively, there is no indication that it is only possible cause of military suffering).

Thus, it is possible but not certain that T is present if we know there is military suffering.

I will go with "D". I think "it is certain" in C is too strong.

OA?
