Please explain why A is not the answer.

I think the meaning of A makes sense. Only difference between A and D is that A is passive and D is active.

kookies As mentioned above, the dissolution cannot be interpreted as a friction, rather the dissolution happened because of the friction.

"Recent friction" explains why the firm dissolved.
The dissolution cannot be interpreted as the friction.
(C) is even weirder. The firm is dissolving?

Official Explanation:


The verb doesn't match the content. The recent friction is best described as a possible cause or explanation for the dissolution of the firm. Answers (A), (B), and (C) are eliminated because they use words such as interpreted and seen, which are not an accurate or logical description of a dissolution. In (E), the phrase with the possible explanation for this being is unnecessarily long. (D) states correctly that the friction between the founding members was one possible reason for the dissolution of the firm.

Hey, MikeScarn, GMATNinja, GMATNinjaTwo, hazelnut, generis
I am not convinced with option D.
A is clear...no issues of SV and concise.
D is also clear but is long.
please explain me why the answer is D and not A?
