was between A and B. think it is A coz idiom is "right to"

Believe E is wrong becaue to whom refers 'those'? to the minority in power?

You make a good point. Also "demand that" is idiomatic.

E.

"right to practice"

I think "that they have" in A is unnecessary.

A. Demand …that they have the right?
B. Changes the meaning.
C. May be.
D. Need ‘for’
E. Demand from those in power TO HAVE the right to practice…


I boiled it down to C & E. I feel that E had something missing. So, I pick C.

Can you guys explain what are your reason(s) to eliminate C?

In A, pronoun reference for "they" is not clear.

In B I think 'demand that' is the correct idiom, it makes the sentence subjunctive. This is used correctly in B, but there is a problem with the use of 'right of practicing' ........'right to practice' should be used.
E corrects this error, but what 'those' refers to in E?

between B and E...

Still like B, even though "practicing" seems out of place, I think it functions as a participle and is okay in the sentence.

Can anyone break B and E down any more and explain the grammer behind them. Thanks!

A) from the people in power that they have the right to practice

not clear what 'they' refers to

B) that the people in power give them the right of practicing

right of practicing not the correct idiom

C) to have the right, from the ones in power, to practice

demand the or demand that is better than demand to


D) the right, from those in power, of practicing

same issue as B


E) from those in power the right to practice

Concise and correct

i think those refers to the groups in power (minority groups demand from those in power) since those should be parallel to the minority groups.... but i'm not 100% clear about this as well... E though not ideal seemed to be the best of the lot
