One of Ronald Reaganâ€™s first acts as President was to rescind President Carterâ€™s directive that any chemical banned on medical grounds in the United States be prohibited from sale to other countries.
(A) that any chemical banned on medical grounds in the United States be prohibited from sale to other countries
(B) that any chemical be prohibited from sale to other countries that was banned on medical grounds in the United States
(C) prohibiting the sale to other countries of any chemical banned on medical grounds in the United States
(D) prohibiting that any chemical banned on medical grounds in the United States is sold to other countries
(E) that any chemical banned in the United States on medical grounds is prohibited from being sold to other countries
All capital letter sentences are considered wrong by ETS.
Ok, compare E and A you'll see two major differences. First is "be" vs "is", second is "from sale" vs "from being sold". E is wrong on both counts.
In sentences like "He requires", "We ask", "The president direct", etc., you need to use verbs in their original form. It is equivalent to "should do" but "should" here must be omitted. So it would be "We ask that you type your post in small case letters", or "The president's directive that the weapons be sold to other countries is not right".
