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?
