I'd go with A.

The clause cant begin with "that", so it brings us down to A, C, E. It has to end with "than", not "as" since there is no as (adj) as clause. This would require the phrase "as close as" which none of them have.

Thus we are down to A and C.

C has "acknowledge another" which is wrong. So its A.

( Actually as far as I'm concerned even " each side to acknowledge each other" is wrong, it should be "each side to acknowledge the other". )

A for the same reasoning.


A for the same reason.

C is wrong because another is used with more than 2 things, so it would have been "one another" Since only 2 things, we like each other :-D

Matt you pointed right. I got really confused.

one another when we focus on more than 2 things
each other for 2 things.

Agree with A.

I think this construction would also be correct :

the refusal of each side to acknowledge the other as a legitimate

Any comments ???? :roll:

Can someone please explain this question! Would be grateful if I could get the usage of

The other
another
each other


as the question tests this concept.

In the conflict between the israelis and the palestinians, the refusal of each side to acknowledge each other as a legitimate national movement is closer to the heart of the problem than is any other issue.

The first split, before considering "other, another", is "than" VS "as". Because each sentence uses "closer" => "than" is required. Out B and E
Secondly we can eliminate D, because has a "that" at the beginning. Out D as well

a- the refusal of each side to acknowledge each other as a legitimate national movement is closer to the heart of the problem than
c- the refusal of each side to acknowledge another as a legitimate national movement is closer to the heart of the problem than

Here is the "each other" VS "another" problem. The solution relies in the meaning of the sentence.
the refusal of each side to acknowledge each other (side)
This expression means that I (side A) refuse to acknowledge side B as legit. The rule of "each" is this one: it limits the "range". The text talks about two sides that refuse to acknowledge each other. Side A with side B and the opposite. In C however
the refusal of each side to acknowledge another (side), here the intended meaning could vary.
I (side A) refuse to acknowledge another side (that could be side B or not). I hope that the expression "limit the range" makes more sense now.

each other means they are talking about themselves. No 3rd party involved.

Another adds the ambiguity here. Does it mean they don't recognize a 3rd party or each other ?

Each Other Vs One another
"each other" is for two things; "one another"
for more than two.

If you have trouble "getting this" suggest you make a flashcard. Idioms can be troublesome.

Also arrive at 2/3 or 3/2split and then look for differences between the narrowed answer choices.

Between A,E go with A as closer than correctly conveys the intended meaning. Not understanding the intended meaning is sacrilegious when going about SC. Pronoun ambiguities are easier to spot while you're comprehending the question as well, you so can kill two birds with one stone.

Edited for clarity 8-)


I think differently
th refusal of each side " need "to acknowlege THE OTHER". it is not logic to say that " the refusal of each side to ackowlege another"

gmat use simple and basic grammar rule to make illogic combination and force us to realize those illogic combinations.
practive realizing illogic combination is important
