We can immediately eliminate A, B, and C because "between" should be followed by "and". Between D and E, I choose <b>E</b>.

Why not D??

automan,

If we dont use other then we end up comapring Japan with itself also...

Anytime there is a comarison of between one thing and a group of things, which include the first thing also, we need to make the comparison clear by introducing "OTHER".

E fixes it.

is the usage " during " in D right?

the question is not whether "during or within" is correct.

"all major" in D is wrong. the correct one is "all other (means all but japan) major".

Thanks alot Professor. I understand Y D stands to be wrong, I am more intersted in knowing whether usage of during is right over within.

What would make a better choice and y if the choice were

(D) and all other major industrial nations will be redressed during
(E) and all other major industrial nations will be redressed within

i believe "during" is not correct here because it means "over a period of time" and you donot address a given issue tomorrow, day after tomorrow, day after day after tomorrow and so on. you keeps on adressing the issue everyday and every time from today and to the forseeable future.

"within" means you can address the issue anytime in between today and the forseeable future.

guys pls correct me, if any.

'between A with all B' is not idiomatic --> A,B,C are out
D is out --> 'during the foreseeable future' is not idiomatic

E is the best choice

"E".

Also, can someone explain when should "During" be used? I read somewhere that "During" should never be used when a time period is specified, or maybe it was the other way round!!!
