I will go with â€˜Dâ€™
Statement 1: Either Pâ€™s faction or Tâ€™s faction will win.
Statement 2: If Pâ€™ faction wins => nation will suffer economically.
Statement 3: If Tâ€™ faction wins => nation will suffer militarily.
A â€“ False, because one of the them has to win and when one of them wins the nation will either suffer economically or militarily.
B â€“ Not necessarily true, Statement 3 does not mention this
C â€“ False, both can happen
E â€“ False. From Statement 1
