I think it's (E):

If {Intervention} then {region falls under}

This statement gives as absolutely no information, no hint about what will happen in case of no intervention. We can't say whether the region will fall or not. So

If {No Intervention} then the whole region may or may not fall under enemy influence

The argument says that If Country X does not intervene militarily in Country Y, then the whole region will definitely fall under enemy influence

The argument doesn’t give any information about what happens If Country X does intervene militarily

So the answer should "May or may not fall under enemy influence"

So IMO the answer is E

OA in a while

Take below example

A--> B(A causes B)
B --> A ( B causes A --> may be true or may not be)

C is wrong.

Take simple example

Recession causes Job Loss
Job loss causes recession (May be or May not be)

Picked E. Can the OA be added into the question? (I mean in terms of the red-green signals)
