During her presidency of the short-lived Woman’s State Temperance Society (1852-1853), Elizabeth Cady Stanton, as she was a staunch advocate of liberalized divorce laws, scandalized many of her most ardent supporters in her suggestion that drunkenness should be made sufficient cause for divorce.

A. as she was a staunch advocate of liberalized divorce laws, scandalized many of her most ardent supporters in her suggestion that drunkenness should be --> incorrect use of as/suggestion+should be -- wrong answer.

B. as she was a staunch advocate for liberalized divorce laws, scandalized many of her most ardent supporters by her suggestion of drunkenness being --> incorrect use of as/being -- wrong answer

C. in being a staunch advocate for liberalized divorce laws, had scandalized many of her most ardent supporters with the suggestion of drunkenness being --> in being/being/had -- wrong answer

D. a staunch advocate of liberalized divorce laws, scandalized many of her most ardent supporters by suggesting that drunkenness be --> subjunctive+that+be = correct answer

E. a staunch advocate of liberalized divorce laws, she scandalized many of her most ardent supporters in suggesting that drunkenness should be --> in suggesting/suggestion+should be --> wrong answer

Expert's post
In A and E, suggestion/suggesting that drunkenness SHOULD be made is redundant. To SUGGEST something -- all on its own -- implies that it SHOULD be done. Eliminate A and E.

In B and C, suggestion of drunkenness implies that DRUNKENNESS is what Elizabeth Cady Stanton was SUGGESTING. What Elizabeth Cady Stanton suggested was that drunkenness be made sufficient cause for divorce. Quite a different meaning. Eliminate B and C.

The correct answer is D.
