Hey Toad King,
I frequently use this strategy as well for justify the conclusion questions. This is a particularly appealing strategy when there is only one premise and only one central concept in the conclusion.
The correct answer will often be in one of two forms:
if premise then conclusion
if no conclusion then no premise
Obviously these forms could be replaced with unless, only, only if, the only, any, all, necessary, or any of your other conditional words you should have memorized.
In this case, we are looking for an answer that links "only neighboring country able to help" to "should help."
B is an answer choice that links those two ideas.
I hope this explanation helps you and keep using the method you described while adding the possibility that the contrapositive of that method also works.
