e.

a sounds wrong..unable to pin point why.
b passive voice.
c grammar is wrong. retaining is form of verb. retention might have made more sense
d retention is noun form. the alternative "or show" is verb. mismatch

the correct form would be "require + subject + infinitive".

A is wrong because of "should".

E is the answer.

OA = E. Could you please explain as to why B is incorrect?

I picked B due to subjuntive rule. However, the subjunctive strucutre does not seem to be valid in this particular situation. Is it due to the fact that the verbs 'to retain' and 'show' requires parallelism?

E is correct for 2 main reasons:

"require to" should be followed by subjunctive mood.
"to retain" and "(to) show" should be parallel.

Rest all of them seem to be missing these elements.

I still have doubt why E is correct and not B. As per the subjunctive definition it should have that +infinitive form of verb without to .

This clearly is satisfied by choice B , any comments ??

the reason B is wrong is because the tense is shifted to passive (i.e. be retained BY employers) and will not match the second part ([to] show just cause for dismissal), which is an active phrase.

E it is.
requiring employees to retain or (to) show.
Passive voice in choice B.

Would be really good if you can underline the portion that has to be corrected.
