i have a doudt here.
lets see

Subjunctive has the next construction

subject + verb + that + subject + verb in simple form
or
subject + verb + subject + verb in infinitive

Example:
We urge that you leave now.
We urge you to leave now.

This Q can re-writting to the next
Legislation ... requires .... employers ......
Subject ........verb..........subject..........(and here we need use infinitive)

as i understood we have to use That in next construction

Legislation ... requires ..THAT.. employers ......
Subject ........verb.......THAT..subject..........(and here we need use infinitive without to)
BOT NOT
Legislation ... requires .... employers ....THAT..
Subject ........verb.........subject..........THAT..

This is the link where bb explaine subjunctive subjunctive-and-use-of-that-with-simple-verb-form-79606.html

Please could expert explaine this problem

Thanks in advance

3.Legislation in the Canadian province of Ontario requires of both public and private employers that pay be the same for jobs historically held by women as for jobs requiring comparable skill that are usually held by men.

(A) that pay be the same for jobs historically held by women as for jobs requiring comparable skill that are
(B) that pay for jobs historically held by women should be the same as for a job requiring comparable skills
(C) to pay the same in jobs historically held by women as in jobs of comparable skill that are
(D) to pay the same regardless of whether a job was historically held by women or is one demanding comparable skills
(E) to pay as much for jobs historically held by women as for a job demanding comparable skills


(A) for subjunctive mood: requires ......that x to be y.

a) is correct for subjunctive mood.
b) violet the subjunctive mood - requires + should is wrong.
c) omits that.
d) omits that.
e) omits that.

Great Question. My answer was C initially because i skipped option A. But when i read is more carefully "A" make more sense. Lesson, don't skip a choice without reading it once :-)

+1 A

Idiom: "require of (noun) THAT (noun) (verb: subjunctive)"

(B) that pay for jobs historically held by women should be the same as for a job requiring comparable skills
(C) to pay the same in jobs historically held by women as in jobs of comparable skill that are
(D) to pay the same regardless of whether a job was historically held by women or is one demanding comparable skills
(E) to pay as much for jobs historically held by women as for a job demanding comparable skills

B - require ... that ... should - incorrect
C - pay in - not a correct idiom, should be pay for
D - awkward structure - a job was ... or is one (job) ...
E - jobs vs job


stuck between A, C- choose C. good to learn that "pay in" does not go well!

In subjunctive construction
subject + verb (such as require) + that + subject + verb in simple form
However the construction in this question is
subject + verb (such as require) + subject + that + verb in simple form
swapping the subject and that -- "requires + of both public and private employers + that + pay be
shouldn't it be -- "requires + that + both public and private employers + pay
Is choice A acceptable? Can anyone explain?


Even I am confused here.
How can I say something like:

It is required of him that pay be ....

I can understand if one says something like:

It is required of him that he pay....

Another way to look out this question

Legislation.......requires....... As legislation requiring something so it should be followed by THAT

Legislation......requires........that. In the middle modifiers are inserted for confusion.

Correct me if my understanding is wrong.

(A) that pay be the same for jobs historically held by women as for jobs requiring comparable skill that are

I know answer choice A is correct, but it uses the "preposition + noun + verb-ing"

is this correct because the object of the preposition is jobs and not the "requiring of jobs"? In any case is this an OG problem? I was told in OG they rarely use that construction in a correct ans. choice.

was wondering between C& A. But C "says in jobs" should be "for". Hence answer is A
