I'm going w/A.

Subjunctive case so C, D and E are out. B/W A and B - A is parallel, B is not

Alternatively, you can remove the modifiers and narrow the choices down to A and B:

C seems to be correct over here...

The government requires of both...so the government is asking to do something...thus the use of that is incorrect...

jobs don't have a skill. It is men or women who have skills
(D) to pay the same regardless of whether a job was historically held by women or is one demanding comparable skills
Awkward
(E) to pay as much for jobs historically held by women as for a job demanding comparable skills

I remember this from Kaplan. When using "order" words like
[ require - request - order - ask .. etc ]

the rule of thumb is : [order word] + "that" + subject + "be"

Here only answer choice A uses it correctly

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

[ order word ] : requires
the word that should appear next, so cross out choices C,D, and E
subject : pay
only choice A uses the verb "be"

A as subjective be is required for obligation or order.

Between A and C, A seems fine.

In "C" the meaning is not very clear.
