The problem with Taiwan is that it has a dispute with China: both countries believe that they have the right to rule over both China and Taiwan! So China does not recognize Taiwan. And since China is very powerful, it can pressure other countries into not recognizing it either (most do, but  sometimes not completely). the correct answer is: d. because not all countries recognize it as a sovereign nation
