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.

(A) both sides are intent on creating difficulties for the other
(B) both sides are intent on creating difficulties for each other
(C) each side is intent on creating difficulties for the other
(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

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,
