14. The complex tax dispute between the Covered Bridge Mall and Harris Township is not likely to be adjudicated for several years, and, in the meantime, both sides are intent on creating difficulties for the other.

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 :)
