Explanatory Answer

Method of solving this CAT Question from Sentence Correction:

'Had it not been for' and 'if it had not been for' are both correct; one is the inversion of the other.

The use of 'will' in the given sentence is incorrect. To talk about something that did not happen (past conditionals), 'would have' is used.

Also, it is incorrect to omit 'been' and say 'the dispute would not have resolved'. A dispute is resolved. The past participle form of 'is'— been — is missing in the given sentence.

The question is " Choose the grammatically correct option "

Hence, the answer is option A

Choice A is the correct answer.
