guys,

Although it is difficult, I have to recognize that I was wrong. Nobody is perfect. :)

Thank you vannbj for great debate.

C is wrong answer choice. D is correct .

С is wrong because it is half correct (1part) half wrong (2 part). It is definitively not certain that they will not suffer both, they may suffer both.

Either Perry’s faction or Tucker’s faction, but not both, will win control of the government. If Perry’s faction wins, the nation will suffer economically. If Tucker’s faction wins, the nation will suffer militarily.

Premise 1: Just one P or T win
Premise 2: If P win, P harm the government
Premise 3: If T win, T harm the military

Given the statements in the passage, which one of the following statements must be true?
(A) It is possible, but not certain, that the nation will neither suffer economically nor suffer militarily.
(B) If the nation suffers economically, it is certain that Perry’s faction has won control of the government. => reverse one, certain is wrong
(C) It is certain that the nation will suffer either economically or militarily, and also certain that it will not suffer both. => Certain wrong
(D) If the nation suffers militarily, it is possible, but not certain, that Tucker’s faction has won control of the government. => Right one, the possibility of reverse
(E) If the nation suffers both economically and militarily, it is certain that neither Perry’s faction nor Tucker’s has won control of the government. => Certain is wrong
