### HideShow timer Statistics

Seven countries signed a treaty binding each of them to perform specified actions on a certain fixed date, with the actions of each conditional on simultaneous action taken by the other countries. Each country was also to notify the six other countries when it had completed its action.

The simultaneous-action provision of the treaty leaves open the possibility that

(A) the compliance date was subject to postponement, according to the terms of the treaty
(B) one of the countries might not be required to make any changes or take any steps in order to comply with the treaty, whereas all the other countries are so required
(C) each country might have a well-founded excuse, based on the provision, for its own lack of compliance
(D) the treaty specified that the signal for one of the countries to initiate action was notification by the other countries that they had completed action
(E) there was ambiguity with respect to the date after which all actions contemplated in the treaty are to be complete

really confusing. But C looks correct because others seem incorrect i.e.used POE.

Why E is incorrect? Looks more close to the argument

E says there was ambiguity with respect to the date but as per the passage the date is fixed and there is no ambiguity about the date....

C for me.

The punctuation seem to have some problem ? That confused me.

Seven countries signed a treaty binding each of them to perform specified actions on a certain fixed date . With the actions of each conditional on simultaneous action taken by the other countries, each country was also to notify the six other countries when it had completed its action.

You know what? I think it might be A. I mean if the actions are supposed to be simultaneously and everybody is waiting for notification of the others, then there is a possibility that nobody has done it on the termed date (and thus a postpone is needed).

Yes, C should be correct because all the others are incorrect.
