E is the most conservative choice. We are given that if X does not intervene then Y will fall under enemy influence. However, even if X intervenes, we cannot ascertain the outcome for sure because nothing is given about if X does

Whats wrong with C?

C biases the possible result towards country Y not falling under enemy influence. That we do not know and yet, C takes a more aggressive/biased stance than E in staying neutral as to the outcome of Y if X does not intervene

I know this question. Paul is right on this. One needs to understand the mentality in making a statement. The difference between C and E is that
"proven innocent" is not same as "not proven guilty"

E is the most diplomatic answer. By the way I got this Q wrong on the first attempt.
