E for "requires to"

A is wrong for a subjunctive case.

(D) employers’ retention of all older workers

(E) employers to retain all older workers


Why E over B?



Ok, Let's try to complete the sentence using B:

Senator Lasker has proposed legislation requiring that all older workers be retained by employers indefinitely or show just cause for dismissal.

Who has to show the cause for dismisssal??
It's employers. But in above sentence , the clause "show just cause for dismissal" is missing noun.

Now let's try with E.

Senator Lasker has proposed legislation requiring employers to retain all older workers indefinitely or show just cause for dismissal.

It's clear that who has to show the cause for dismissal.

Hence E should be the answer.

ok, seeing who does the actions, i realize the second clause is referring incorrectly to the workers rather than the employers.
b. Senator Lasker has proposed legislation requiring that all older workers be retained by employers indefinitely or show just cause for dismissal.

(A) that employers should retain all older workers
(B) that all older workers be retained by employers
(C) the retaining by employers of all older workers
(D) employers’ retention of all older workers
(E) employers to retain all older workers



(A) that employers retain all older workers
This way A) would be correct.
(B) that all older workers be retained by employers
I do not see anything wrong, just the passive voice
(E) employers to retain all older workers
No problem, the verb require asks for infinitive (suggest would aks for gerund), the more concise, thus the correct one.

That is not pointing nowhere, and use of verb tense differs in B. E is correct.

The SC is checking the correct uses of idiom.
Correct idiom relating to require are:
1. requiring to x to y, and
2. requiring that xy
Correct answer is E.
(E) employers to retain all older workers

+1 E

E is more concise than B too.
Active voice is better in this case.
