The original sentence has three grammatical errors:

1. Tense error - with "has said" (present tense), it should be "will" and not "would"
2. Preposition error - instead of "policies of individuals", it should be "policies for individuals"
3. Preposition error - "since" should be used only for past events; here it is a future event, therefore "after"

Choice C eliminates all the three errors.

I vote for D.
C is wrong because : long-term new care is wrong, it should be new long-term care .etc

A. MetLife has said that it would stop underwriting new long‐term care policies of individuals since December.
B. MetLife said that they would stop underwriting of new long‐term care policies for individuals from December.
C. MetLife is saying that it will stop underwriting long‐term new care policies for individuals after December.
D. MetLife said that it would stop underwriting new long‐term care policies for individuals after December.
E. MetLife said it would be stopping underwriting new long‐term care policies for individuals after December.


In A, there are several errors
1) "of individuals". This is trying to show that it is the individual's policies. But the correct sense is "policies for individuals".
2) "since". Since is trying to show that they have already stopped underwriting.
The correct meaning is "they will stop underwriting" which is in future, hence the usage of since is incorrect.

In B, "they" is trying to say that MetLife is plural, but since it is a company "it" should be used rather than "they".
Also, "underwriting of new long-term" is incorrect usage.

In C, "is saying" tries to show that MetLife is still saying. Incorrect.
We need "said".

In D, "said" is correct verb form
Also "that" is correctly used.
"policies for" is correct.
"after December" is also correct.

Therefore, D is Correct.

In E, "that" is missing after said.
"be stopping" is also incorrect verb form.

Re: Citing well‐known challenges to the long‐term [#permalink] New post 29 Dec 2012, 18:34
In this question, option D
Metlife SAID, .. that it WOULD – both past tense
underwrite………. after december? (in the future) ??

should it not be — Metlife said, that it will (present tense if takes future tense action) and after december.

Please correct me if I’m wrong.
