    If Bosnia's peace _____, war criminals can no longer go unpunished.

    (A) is to endure

    (B) will endure

    (C is going to endure

    (D) endures

    (A) 假如波士尼亞的和平要持續的話,....

    (B) 假如波士尼亞的和平會持續的話,....

    (C) 假如波士尼亞的和平會持續的話,....

    (D) 假如波士尼亞的和平持續下去的話,....

    .... = 戰爭罪犯就不可再逍遙法外.

    就語意邏輯而言, 這是提出一個前提, 要和平持續就要有相對代價(懲治戰犯平息眾怒), 否則必然紛擾不斷, 和平將難以持續. 這個邏輯, 只有A符合.

    B,C,D所說的「如果一直很和平」, 與「戰犯就不再能免罰」並不存在因果關係, 它意謂「不和平戰犯就可以不懲治」, 這說不通, 所以皆非正解.
