You got 2 minutes. Go!!

Unless negotions begin soon, the cease-fire will be violated by one of the two sides to the dispute. Negotions will be held only if other countries have pressured the two sides to negotiate; an argument will emerge only if other countries continue such pressure throughout the negotions. But no negotiations will be held until international troops enforcing the cease-fire have demonstrated their ability to counter any agression from either side, thus suppressing a major incentive for the two sides to resume fighting.

If the statements above are true, and if negotions between the two sides do begin soon, at the time home negotiations begin each of the folllowing must also be true EXCEPT:

A) The cease-fire has not been violated by either of the two sides

B) International troops enforcing the cease-fire have demonstrated that they can counter aggression from either of the two sides.

C) A major incentive for the two sides to resume hostilities has been suppressed.

D) Other countries have exerted pressure on the two sides to the dispute.

E) The negotiations' reaching an agreement depends in part on the actions of other countries.

B) International troops enforcing the cease-fire have demonstrated that they can counter aggression from either of the two sides.

A for me))
Let me try to explain my logic on this
Though i am not good in explanations I ll do my best

Unless negotions begin soon, the cease-fire will be violated by one of the two sides to the dispute. Negotions will be held only if other countries have pressured the two sides to negotiate; an argument will emerge only if other countries continue such pressure throughout the negotions. But no negotiations will be held until international troops enforcing the cease-fire have demonstrated their ability to counter any agression from either side, thus suppressing a major incentive for the two sides to resume fighting.

If the statements above are true, and if negotions between the two sides do begin soon, at the time home negotiations begin each of the folllowing must also be true EXCEPT:

A) The cease-fire has not been violated by either of the two sides

B) International troops enforcing the cease-fire have demonstrated that they can counter aggression from either of the two sides.

C) A major incentive for the two sides to resume hostilities has been suppressed.

D) Other countries have exerted pressure on the two sides to the dispute.

E) The negotiations' reaching an agreement depends in part on the actions of other countries.

In order the negotiations took place several conditions must be fulfilled
1)Negotions will be held only if other countries have pressured the two sides to negotiate
2)international troops enforcing the cease-fire will demonstrate their ability to counter any agression from either side, thus suppressing a major incentive for the two sides to resume fighting

B ,C and D out
an argument will emerge only if other countries continue such pressure throughout the negotions
so E is out
A looks good for me because even if The cease-fire was violated by either of the two sides, there is no mention for this reason to be enought to stop negotiations.
In extreme case the negotiations will be postponed, but still held later on.
Hope this helps
