I'm going with C.

The correct usage is either "both sides are" or "each side is." The end of the sentence says "for the other." This indicates you need a singular subject with "each side."

I think B is not wrong, but C is better

b) Both sides ... each other.

looks like a case of redundancy.

c) each side ... other

better.

Nothing more I can see in the comparison.

Well i guess C is the correct option coz.................... "each" is used to point out differences between two things and "both" is used to point out similarities between two things..
In this Sc i feel we are trying to convey that each side is creating its own set of difficulties for the other...hence C

I hope this is the correct reasoning
