Hi nitya,
Could you please explain how compliance being a singular will affect the outcome of the options A, C and D.

I have outlined the corrections which if correct would have made these sentences acceptable. Please correct me if I am wrong

A. requiring that turtle-excluder devices be on shrimp nets to protect
B. I can't tell wat is wrong with the setence, but it doesn't sound right.
C. that require turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets to protect
D. to require turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets which are protecting
E. This is the right option.

I'm not sure whether "to require" is a proper construction. I think B is the right one. I'll appreciate some explanation from the pros here...

Please explain your answers. Thanks.



try to find the main subject and verb here..

Main subject : compliance

complicance... protect adult sea turtles
Sub- Verb Problem

A,C -- > are out.

complicance...are protecting adult sea turtles
D -->out

between B and E

"laws to require" is not idiomatic

B is better.

agreed with B

now I have one hypothetical Q

if there is protect(s) instead of protect in option C

which one to choose from? B or C?

B. requiring turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets is protecting
C. that require turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets protect


NOTE: This Q is now @ OG 12#133

Still B.

In C : that --> modifies laws.

its like you are introducing suborinate clause:
laws <that> require "turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets" protect

here for verb --> "protect" subject looks like "devices" --> which is gramaticall correct, but logicall incorrect.

If you change the "protect" to protects" is also not going to help in the sentence C.
Now both itis gramatically and Logically incorrect.

A. requiring that turtle-excluder devices be on shrimp nets protect --> the whole modifier requiring that turtle-excluder devices be on shrimp is too wordy to modify for laws, single noun their compliance is not suitable with protect
B. requiring turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets is protecting -->the best: requiring turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets is a more simple participle phrase modifier for laws than that of A. Besides, is protecting is compliant with their compliance
C. that require turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets protect -->same error of A
D. to require turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets are protecting -->to + Inf here does not clearly modify for which Noun and betterly idiomatically modifies for another to + inf than a Noun. Also, are protecting is grammatical incorrect with their compliance
E. to require turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets is protecting -->same error of D

Also for C to be correct, both compliance and protenct should both be either singular or plural...I'll choose B

C. that require turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets protect
D. to require turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets are protecting
E. to require turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets is protecting


B.


Is that is incorrect in A?

I rejected A because of the usage of protect, it should be protects I think for singular (compliance)
If given a choice A with protects, will it be incorrect?

C. that require turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets protect
D. to require turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets are protecting
E. to require turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets is protecting


I am not sure but does this sentence falls under the subjunctive mood? If yes, then I guess A is the correct one. I am kinda of confused. Any suggestions ?

Anyway whats the OA ?

E. to require turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets is protecting


Note: 'protect' needs the verb form for the subject 'compliance', so should be protects.

A, C, D are gone
D and E are gone for the "to require", which is incorrect.

Only B left

I think that is correct in A, only verb form of protect is incorrect.

Lets get rid of middlemen as far as possible.

"They wanted to take credit for A saying that their compliance with B requiring C 'is' protecting D"

compliance is the subject in second half, so verb must be singular. either "IS protecting" (progressive) or "protects" (simple present)
thus, A, C & D out

Among B and E, "laws requiring .." is better than "laws to require"
Therefore B

If you see in the second part of sentence, the subject is the 'compliance' that is singular and requires verb form 'protects', making C incorrect option.

B for me

D and E are out : distort the meaning.
require should modify laws. To require seems to ambiguously modify compliance
A and C are out : compliance ... + singular verb
