Geethu, is "FOR CHOOSING" idiomatic contruction. I liked B, but was hesitant b/c for choosing doesnt seem grammatic. Also, one action over another? We have more then two actions here? From the rest of the sentence, it seems to me that Satre is really speaking of either A or B. I might be wrong though!

1- E
2- B --> "responsible for choosing" and "responsible to choose" are both fine. The flaw is in D with "over the other"
3- C --> D is flawed in 2 aspects. First, it transforms the first part of the sentence to the singular tense which does not follow the parallel form of the second half which is plural. Second, what does "the dwelling" refer to? Who's dwelling? Instead of using a definite article, it should have used an indefinite article with "a dwelling" to make the sentence clear that it could be just any dwelling.

Paul, Agree with B: However, it made me hesitate, one course of action over another, or over the other? Ok, lets get this straight.

One over another: comparing multiple things?

One over the other: Two choices?

You are right in your interpretation of "another" and "the other". However, do we know that there are only 2 choices? What if there were more than 1 choice? In that case, I believe "another" is the safest since it means "one more in addition to one or more of the same kind"
