A, B and D are out for 'diver' versus 'they' --

between C and E, I choose E.

C souded awkward.

IMO E.

A) differences in the human body's internal pressure and the ocean's, it is essential that a diver returning to the surface ascends slowly or they --> it means: 1)differences in the human body's internal pressure and 2)the ocean's are two separated causes. Besides, a diver and they are wrongly compared
B) the difference between the human body's internal pressure and the ocean's, it is essential that a diver returning to the surface ascend slowly or they -->same 2nd error of A
C) the difference in the human body's internal pressure and that of the ocean, it is essential that a diver returning to the surface ascends slowly or he -->same 1st error of A
D) differences in the human body's internal pressure and that of the ocean, it is essential that a diver returning to the surface ascend slowly or they -->same errors of A
E) the difference between the internal pressure of the human body and that of the ocean, it is essential that a diver returning to the surface ascend slowly or he -->fix all the faults of A: 1)idiom between ... and ... correctly connects internal pressure of human body and that - internal pressure, of ocean to the same modifier: the difference. 2) a diver and he -->the best

Hi veenu08:

The command subjunctive is possible with "It is X", in which X is an adjective, such as essential.

The syntax is:It is X that Y do [infinitive without TO].......
Example:
Right: It is important THAT Mary SEND a letter to her professor.
Wrong: It is important THAT Mary SENDS a letter to her professor.
Wrong: It is important THAT Mary TO SEND a letter to her professor.

But you can use infinitive if you change "THAT" to "FOR"
Example:
Right: It is important FOR Mary TO SEND a letter to her professor.

Back to the question, because this is command subjunctive, so the syntax is: "It is essential THAT a diver returning to the surface ASCEND slowly......

Hope that helps.

In C its not totally clear if 'that' is referring to internal pressure or not... since it reads : human body's inter... and that of the ocean (that is referring to body or pressure??? ) , E corrects this ambiguity with structure : internal pressure of the human body and that (internal pressure) of the ocean.
Hope it helps.

"that of" properly refers to internal pressure only in option E. So E should be the answer.
Thanks
