Please underline corresponding area in SC
Anyway, the answer is C
The lack of the word "that" after "requires" essentially cancels out the other options

What is your explanation for D?
"requires anyone...to make" in C sounds better than "requires anyone...must make" when you remove the other fluff in between. If it were "requires that anyone..." then the other options would be possible.
Please correct me if I'm wrong, however. If anyone can state the official reasoning behind the rule, I'd appreciate it!
I still say C

I hate to say that it is idiom because we can call most of things as idiom and its tough to spot uncommon idiom in a flash: I go by rules:

Requires cannot be followed by must as "requires" and "must" are reduntant..Rule out D & E

When you have command oriented word in a sentence and if it is followed by "that" then we use infinitive form of base verb without "to" i.e. to go, to make, etc..

When there is no such "that" following command words like requires, intend, instruct, imperative, direct, etc then the verb can be infinitve form i.e. it should appear with "to" e.g. to go, to play, etc.. This rules out A and B

So C
