B and C are close

but C wins

B seems to say that both sides created obstructions for both sides.

(A) both sides are bent on creating obstructions for the other

(B) both sides are bent on creating obstructions for each other

(C) each side is bent on creating obstructions for the other

(D) each side is bent on creating obstructions for one another

(E) the sides are both bent on creating obstructions for each other

Here is my explanation:

E: is wrong because the adjective "both" modifies the wrong noun.

B,D is wrong becuase "each" is redundant.

Between A and C, A uses "both" and C uses "each". AC "A" is wrong because "both" isnt compatible with "the other". Doesnt make sense. If "both" sides are bent on creating obstruction then who is "the other" associated with?

My AC is "C".

Each fits well with "the other". Dunno the grammatical reason. Any explanations????

(C) each side is bent on creating obstructions for the other

(D) each side is bent on creating obstructions for one another

(E) the sides are both bent on creating obstructions for each other

Here is my finding.

Each other should not be used as the subject of a clause in writing.

Instead of We always know what each other is thinking, one should write Each of us knows what the other is thinking.

I go for C.
