D is using incorrect idiom "deal on"

Correct idiom forms are
"deal with"
meaning: to manage someone or something.
E.g I think I can deal with the problem.

"deal in"
meaning: to buy and sell something.
E.g. The shop deals in gmat books.

Option E correctly uses the "deal with" construction.

Is "resolution to disputes" a correct idiom.. "resolution of..sounds better" even though E seems to be the asnswer.

The last phrase, of the sentence is, '....to take action.' The underlined part must be parallel to this structure, hence between D & E, it's E.

The phrase, in E, '...the peaceful resolution to disputes and entitle the council to make non-binding recommendations...' keeps the structure parallel.

A and E come close. D is wrong for using 'deal on' .. 'deal with' is idiomatic.

E is parallel with the rest of the sentence ...

IMO E.

The question was that "resoultion to" is not the correct idiom. Now if every one here agrees that the correct idiom is "resoultion of" then we should not consider the parallelism of "resoultion to" & "entitle the council to make recommendation".

What do you say guys??? Whenever we want we can violate the principles of SC to justify the OA??

+1
How can "Resolution to" be the correct form? :roll:

Agreeing with the explanation, IMO E
I think in D "two sorts of Security Council resolution[red]s[/red]" is wrong
