D for subjunctive mood.
"demand to V" is corret.
"demand that S + bare infinitive" is correct.

Clearly (D)

....consumers who demanded that it.... is the crux of the problem

This might be one reason why people demanded the old formula be returned:

"According to popular belief, the coca leaf extract cocaine was once added to Coca-Cola, per se. Because cocaine is naturally present in untreated coca leaves, small amounts of cocaine were also present in the beverage. Today's Coca-Cola uses "spent" coca leaves, those that have been through a cocaine extraction process, to flavor the beverage. Since this process cannot extract the cocaine alkaloids at a molecular level, the drink still contains trace amounts of the stimulant." Source ---> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coca-Cola

I have the same question.

Regrets, wishes, demands are expressed with subj mood:

I demand that he be
I require that he go
etc.

But require can be also constructed as following
I require him to go

So why cant we say
I demand it to go??

(A) demanding that it should
(B) demanding it to
(C) and their demand to
(D) who demanded that it
(E) who demanded it to



(D) - pronoun reference, who clarifies that the customers are demanding - and 'it' would refer to the company. 'that it bring back' is also correct usage.
