Between C and D, C sounds a bit extreme with "certain that both will not occur."

I`ll take (D) because the phrasing is much more flexible and cautious.

Agree with MATT, should be D.

P1: Either P or T will win
P2: If P wins nation will suffer Econimically(E). Don't know if it will suffer Militarily(M)
P3: If T wins nation will suffer Militarily(M). Don't know if it will suffer Economically(E)


(A) It is possible, but not certain, that the nation will neither suffer economically nor suffer militarily. ==> From P1, One of the results has to occur. So OUT
(B) If the nation suffers economically, it is certain that Perry’s faction has won control of the government. ==> There could be other reasons for nations Economic suffering, not necessarily P.
(C) It is certain that the nation will suffer either economically or militarily, and also certain that it will not suffer both. ==> First part is true, but second part may or may not be true
(D) If the nation suffers militarily, it is possible, but not certain, that Tucker’s faction has won control of the government. ==> CORRECT!
(E) If the nation suffers both economically and militarily, it is certain that neither Perry’s faction nor Tucker’s has won control of the government. ==> Goes beyond what is stated in P1,P2 or P3
