### HideShow timer Statistics

Seven countries signed a treaty binding each of them to perform specified actions on a certain fixed date, with the actions of each conditional on simultaneous action taken by the other countries. Each country was also to notify the six other countries when it had completed its action.

The simultaneous-action provision of the treaty leaves open the possibility that

(A) the compliance date was subject to postponement, according to the terms of the treaty
(B) one of the countries might not be required to make any changes or take any steps in order to comply with the treaty, whereas all the other countries are so required.
(C) each country might have a well-founded excuse, based on the provision, for its own lack of compliance
(D) the treaty specified that the signal for one of the countries to initiate action was notification by the other countries that they had completed action
(E) there was ambiguity with respect to the date after which all actions contemplated in the treaty are to be complete.

The treaty binds the seven countries to perform certain actions, and those actions should be SIMULTANEOUSLY TAKEN BY THE OTHER COUNTRIES.

(C) each country might have a well-founded excuse, based on the provision, for its own lack of compliance.

If he doesn't do it, I don't do it either.

So, my pick is (C).

one more vote for C.
Can't be A 'coz if everything goes fine, the the compliance date can be met.
B - All the countries require to make changes.
D - Not sure what this means. Nyways, I guess, its more of a fact rather than a weakener

E : Not sure

(A) THIS POSSIBILITY IS NOT OBJETABLE, SINCE ACCORDING TO THE TERMS OF THE TREATY THE DATE CAN BE POSTPONED.

(B) THE TREATY REQUIRES EACH COUNTRY TO PERFORM ANY TASK, SO THIS POSSIBILITY GOES AGAINST THE TREATY.

(C) IF EACH COUNTRY HAS TO FINISH ITS TASK BY THE FIXED DATE, THIS POSSIBILITY GOES AGAINST THE TREATY.

(D) AS THE TASK MUST BE PERFORMED SIMULTANEOUSLY, THIS POSSSIBLITY CONTRADICTS THE TREATY.

(E) IT CONTRADICTS INFORMATION PROVIDED IN THE PASSAGE, SINCE THE IT IS STATED THAT THE DATE FIXED IS CERTAIN.

So, IMO the correct answer is A

(C)

If country A starts a, B can start b saying that it is independent of a.

I don't like this CR at all. It leaves way to much open for interpretation. I chose C because it isn't addressed at all in the passage.

Also, is there any soft-copy of the CR questions (similar to the SC-1000)
? It would be great if you could tell the source of this question.

Sorry for the delay guys!

OA is C! The logic here is each one depending on the other to start their own part of the job.

So its like each one saying, if the other doesnt do I wont do.....though D says something very close, its more of reiterating whats already stated in the passage!

Source: This is from a set that a buddy gave me...its has problems from OG, Kalpan and GMAT PLUS. This seems to be from GMAT PLUS!

sgrover, CR-1000 is a damn good collection! Try that out man! ITs worth it.
