The interpretation of "formed", the interpretation of "Palestinians", and the interpretation of "nation." If "formed" is an active verb, the population of Palestine didn't form anything; the commission did the forming. If "formed" is an intransitive verb, then the term "Palestinians" comprised both Jews and Arabs, and we're faced with the question "What is the meaning of nation - an ethnic entity or a political entity? From the ethnic point of view, there was not one nation but two. From the political point of view, neiither formed a State. And by the time the mandate expired, it was clear that the two ethnic groups could not live together. So why again seek a solution that failed then, in calmer times?
