Expert's post
In the context, between the use of ‘both sides’ and ‘each side’, I believe that ‘each side’ is to be preferred. Using ‘both sides’ may lead to the unintentional distortion in meaning that both sides are jointly planning something. A, B and E are out.

Between C and D, E is faulty for using ‘one another’, which I think is usable for a set of more than two, while the usage of 'for the other' in C is straight. C is the best.

Its a clear C.

Each other and One another are reciprocal pronouns used for expressing ideas happening between a group of people.
Hence C.

But choice "B" clearly states that "both sides......for...each other..." I don't think that the sentence here portray "both sides" as a clubbed entity!!

google this question and you will find instructor opinions on this question, here is a snippet from Ron:
i agree that (c) is the best of these choices, but i don't see a good reason why (b) is definitively wrong - it's just not as "pretty" as (c).
what's the source of this problem? why doesn't anyone ever say where these problems are from?

not problem of preference

if we you "each other", "both' is redundant

"if we use "one another", there are more than 3 person

all other choices but C aquire the above errors.
