C looks fine. In B, "both" is not required with "each other".

This is a tough one for me. Again, I will go with my colloquial English (which may be wrong) and put my money on B. C also does not seem wrong, by the way. Somehow, the combination of "each side" and "the other" does not resonate . "each" and "other" would have seemed better.

(D) each side is intent on creating difficulties for one another
(E) the sides are both intent on creating difficulties for each other


My 2 cents on C
I m eliminating foll :
A-> both ... the other not gud
D-> each .... one another not gud
E -> both intent is awkward here ,changes meaning !!!what not !!!

Finally im between B and C :oops

I will surely go for C since in B we say both sides create diff for each other ,both .. each other makes the sentence awkward ,infact appears redundant !! better construction is C where we say each does .... for the other !!!
whats the OA

I'll go with C as well.

"B. both sides are intent on creating difficulties for each other" --> the use of 'each other' towards the end sounds redundant to me. OA please...

need "each side" so A) , B) and E) are out

between C) and D), C) is better,
