Can someone shed a light between B and C?


Correct: EACH side is intent... on THE OTHER. [THE OTHER refers to the second party.]
Correct: BOTH sides are intent... on EACH OTHER. [EACH OTHER or ONE ANOTHER designates a reciprocal relation between two (or more) entities]

Wrong: BOTH sides are intent... on THE OTHER. [There is no third OTHER party here.]


Hi sayantanc2k,

The option B Says " Both sides are intent ...for each other" (not the other)

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.

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


Are you referring to the difference in the preposition on & for?

Do you think we can eliminate the choices by following reasoning :
Each is for separate groups & both is for collaborativery groups

I fell for B. :(


The point I wanted to convey was that, I do not see any problem either in B or in C. I do not think that not having collaboration could be a ground to eliminate the answer with usage of "both". e.g. Both sides came to the battlefield with an intent to fight till the end..... here the sides do not have collaboration, yet there is no issue with the use of "both".

The reciprocal pronouns (each other / one another) can be used for interaction between the entities involved and creating difficulty is an intercation in this case. One is creating for the other (or both are creating for each other / one another).

what if more than two parties are involved in the situation.

For instance, they( groups) would interact with one another.

or each group would interact with another.

all three sections are entwined with one another.

Are these sentences correct ??

It's a style issue.

... both sides are intent on working together...

or

... the two sides are intent on creating difficulties for each other...

or

... each side is intent on creating difficulties for the other ...

We use 'both' when we are discussing some common ground.
