(D) arenâ€™t always the results of malice; nations in the same way that individuals can find
(E) arenâ€™t resulting always from malice; just like individuals who can find

I'll go with A
I am not sure if Crises is singular, assuming it is we need 'result' and not 'results'
B. Just as x, so y is the correct idom
C. comparison is between nations and individuals, so use 'like'
D. too wordy
E. again i think just like is not correct usage.

I think D is wrong,

Quote:

(D) arenâ€™t always the results of malice; nations in the same way that individuals can find

==> ......................arenâ€™t always the results of malice; nations in the same way that individuals can find themselves locked into difficult positions, unable to back down.

where is the verb for nations ?

crisIs is singular and crisEs is plural.

True, however, the part of the sentence after the ";" does not seem to be complete in itself. Is that not a requirement for sentences separated by a ";"

I am not sure about "for nations" used in A.

For=Because here... implying a reason

which means that the second part is not complete. then why A?

semicolon is appropriate here, because it talks about 2 different things... they are unrelated directly, but the sentence is trying to show the similarity. 1st is a fact, another one is explanation of the fact... 2 unparallel sentences.

Sorry to be persistent, but there is a rule mentiond in MGMAT that both sentences should be complete in themselves (gramatically complete sentences). However the second sentence:
for nations, like individuals, can find themselves locked into difficult positions, unable to back down.
doesnt seem to be complete to me..

what's not complete here?

Individuals can find themselves locked into difficult positions, unable to back down.

now that's a compete sentence... "for" doesn't claim to connect 1st and 2nd clause... at all... it tries to shows the reason why 1st clause is the fact.

Will go with A.

Comparing nouns ..... nations and Individuals....... hence like is appropriate.

I think A is the choice here. This is a difficult question to answer, but not a difficult question in which to eliminate poor choices.

B, C & D all use 'results' instead of 'result'; this is wrong so all 3 choices can be eliminated just through that one relation.

E contains language that is just plain un-grammatical (if that is a word ).

A is the only choice that isn't thrown out right away so that is my choice.
