Answer is D this is incorrect.

Either side will create difficulty for the other. Both cannot cannot create difficulty for the other. C is least awkward.

why is one another wrong???


i think 'one another' is used when used in context of a set of people more than 2. for a set of 2 people, it should be 'each other'

The key lie in the context...

If you say >>> both teams working together...>>> It's a positive context
If you say >>> each team is working against other...>>> It's a negative context

I mat not be very clear.. But if understood, it's the key here..

C. each side is intent on creating difficulties for the other

D. each side is intent on creating difficulties for one another

E. the sides are both intent on creating difficulties for each other




The intendent meaning is to contrast two disputing parties with the actions of each of them in the meantime.

one another is used when we are talking about things, ppl more than 2
each other - when only two sides are implied
for the other - when we intend to affect someone/something other outside of a group

so , answer is C.

I think I go it.

For two parties both EACH...OTHER and EACH OTHER are correct option. In (C):
each side is intent on creating difficulties for the other [side]

The SIDE is removed in the end of the choice.

I am still confused about what is wrong in A and B....:(...can someone please explain

Does the word 'other' and 'each other' in option A and B refer to third parties?...also is the word 'both' referred incorrectly in both A and B?...are these the reasons for A and B to be wrong?

E. the sides are both intent on creating difficulties for each other - awkward

see my post
The intendent meaning is to contrast two disputing parties with the actions of each of them in the meantime. I mean that first part of the sentence describes the dispute between two parties, second part says [intends to contrast] that each of them intent on creating difficulties.

Both is wrong here because:
both (Cambridge Dictionary) - (referring to) two people or things together! Here they compete against each other.

each other - used to show that each person in a group of two people does something to the other
other - refers to 3rd parties outside the group.

gimme kudos ))

I think I got what the wrong with B: "both" and "each other" have the same meaning so is redundant.

But I am still not clear what is the problem with A


A. both sides(together both ) are intent on creating difficulties for the other (third party )

how is this different from C ?

Look, Covered Bridge Mall and Harris Township are enemies they compete against each other. If for example third company XYZ would appear, one of competitors either Mall or Harris (let it be Mall) if form an alliance with XYZ, they together (both of them) would create difficulties for the other (Harris).

Given the example, only two parties are presented and they compete against each other, and not together.

Hope it helps,

gimme kudos!)

But in B, "both" means that the 2 sides are intent on creating difficulties for each other, which seems correct to me. Coudl you please clarify?
