A. we should replace chips and sweetened soft drinks with healthier raw veggies, fruits, whole-grain biscuits and low-fat cheese. - use of should is incorrect with "suggest"
B. one replaces chips and sweetened soft drinks for healthier raw veggies, fruits, whole-grain biscuits and low- fat cheese. -unidiomatic
C. we replace chips and sweetened soft drinks with healthier raw veggies, fruits, whole-grain biscuits and low-fat cheese. - correct
D. us replace chips and sweetened soft drinks with healthier raw veggies, fruits, whole-grain biscuits or low-fat cheese. -passive noun can not be used in the place of subject
E. we replace chips as well as sweetened soft drinks with healthier raw veggies including fruits, whole-grain biscuits and low-fat cheese. - incorrectly suggests that veggies include fruits and biscuits..alters the intent




Replace with - is the correct idiom

+1 C

Suggest is command subjunctive so it should be C as CS takes verb with an s.

I would like to add one more thing

The word "suggest" doesn't always take command - subjective
For example, the following sentence is correct

scientists suggest that the moon was formed from part of the Earth .

SUGGEST can be used in conjunction with SHOULD/MUST/WILL/MIGHT/CAN etc. This is NOT a repetition.
A search for ""suggest that we should"" gives 12M results in google.
If that doesn't convince you, look at OG 12 question number 13.
