E it is

would is wrong, so A and C are out.
D is little verbose.
Needs an adverb for undermining, so b is out
So, left with E.

What is OA?

Prediction requires a 'would' or 'will' - so between A & C. I will go with A - I guess the 'it' refers to ethinicity.

A)...i think as well that "would" is required after "require". the sentence expresses a condition contrary to fact. the subjunktive mood is used here.

It is (A).

1. X predicted that Y would.... is correct.
2. it here refers to "ethnicity"

I remember this question. Paul had described this question very well. I would suggest all of us to visit atleast once to that thread. I will post the link once I find it.
