Step 1: "To tackle" must be parallel with whatever begins the underlined portion, so "to become" is the correct option. Eliminate choice (A).

Step 2: (B) and (E) duplicate the error that occurs in the stem. Eliminate

Step 3: (C) and (D) remain. Choice (C) is uses the more concise "raging" to describe "war", whereas (D) uses "which is raging". (C) also uses "between" while (D) uses "among". Since we have two groups (those who support and those who would lift), "between" is the correct word. "Among" is correct when we're with more than two elements, groups, items.
