A) 'among' should be used for comparison more than two objects. For two objects - 'between'
B) 'among' should be used for comparison more than two objects. For two objects - 'between'
C) 'between A with X' should be 'between A and X' - idiom
D) correct
E) change of meaning: A says 'believe in compromising' and this answer says 'believe that achieving means something'. Use 'believing' instead of 'who believe' not preferable on GMAT. Break of parallelism: 'between those believing and those who believe'

Ans: D
look for the split 2,3 in options.
Two different groups are involved, hence between should be used. Concentrate on C,D,E.
C and E do not follow parallelism. D is the best answer choice.

Press Kudos if you liked.

Between is used, if there are only two choices (Between X and Y), Among for more than two.

Just read D, is this sentence clear enough.
I think some words are missing.
Between x and y, x are those who believe and y are those who ??

I concur with mkgandhi (nice name :P ). Some words are definitely missing in option D. Though POE made it the only correct option.

There are only two sides to this issue; one, those who do not mind compromising and second, those who don’t want to compromise. So the use of ‘between ---- and’ is the only appropriate choice. Only D is doing that. Well of course, some words seem to be missing but, let‘s pass it as typo.

The typo renders all answer options invalid. I could say C is correct if it was not for the "with" instead of "and" and for the "who believe" instead of "believing" typos.

Within the Green Party,an internal debate is raging among those who believe in compromising with mainstream politicians in order to achieve some goals with those who believe the party must not abandon any of its principles.

A. among those who believe in compromising with mainstream politicians in order to achieve some goals with those who believe the party must not abandon any of its principles. - there are two sides who are debating, so, it should be between not among.

B. among those who believe that achieving some goals requires compromise with mainstream politicians and those believing that none of the party's principles must be abandoned. - same problem as A

C. between those believing in compromising with mainstream politicians in order to achieve some goals with those who believe the party must not abandon any of its principles. - parallelism problem - those believing .......... with those who believe (not good).

D. between those who believe in compromising with mainstream politicians in order to achieve some goals and those who the party must not abandon any of its principles. - Correct - between - parallelism and meaning.

E. between those believing that achieving some goals means compromising with mainstream politicians and those who believe that the principles of the party must not be abandoned. - Parallelism Problem - same as C

Thanks Daagh for clearing that up. I selected D but was worried because of missing "believe " for parallelism. :)

But don't you think the part of the ans "and those who the party must not abandon any of its principles" is a little awkward? dont you think "and those who believe the party must not abondon any of its priciples" makes more sense?

Please help if I am wrong somewhere.

Hi AbdurRakib "believe" is missing in choice D. Please correct. It's misleading. Thanks

Hope your preparation is going well.
Let us understand the approach to solve SC questions.
The first step is to check the underlined portion. If you are able to identify any error, eliminate A.
The next step should be to eliminate any other choice which repeats the error. With the remaining choice, POE should be done. The correct answer choice should rectify the existing error and should not introduce any new error. Also, the intended meaning of the sentence should remain unchanged.
Now let us explore this question.
A. Among is incorrectly used. Between should be used as the comparison is drawn between two groups.
B. This choice is also eliminated because of the same reason.
C. This choice is idiomatically incorrect. The right usage is between X and Y
D. Is the right answer
E. This choice changes the intended idea of the sentence. Also, parallelism is not established as those believing is not parallel with those who believe.
Hope the explanation helps.
Keep practicing. Consistency is the key to do well in the verbal section.
All the best!!
