### 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

Picking C over E.
A seems out of scope.
B states too much redundant information.
D simply restates the last line of the passage.

One more for C.

Narrow Choices are B and C
Rest are out of scope.

C is correct as each country can have a valid excuse to not initiate action as none of the other 5 were simultaneous.

Will go with C.

Notification of completion of an action is required from one of the countries for that country to take action.
That is there is a possiblity that no action will be taken as each country will say that it is waiting for the notification from the other country.
