Re: SC on Coca-Cola ! [#permalink] New post 03 Jan 2007, 08:18
I ran into this one while revising my old OG. Just to make one point clear here: The topic tested is not whether the subjunctive mode should or should not be used. It´s simple usage of the verb demand.

While some verbs such as require allow you to say both "X requires Y to do Z" and "X requires that Y do Z", some others such as demand allow you to say "X demands that Y do Z" only.

The verb demand can have an object, yes, but this object must be the item demanded, not the entity to whom you demand the item: "X demands something (from Y)" is correct, while "X demands Y to do something" is incorrect.
