I would say C
A sounds awkward and subjunctive is not necessary
B will is not required because the action (spoke) is already done
D & E sounds wierd too

Whats OA?

Condition>>Subjunctive reqd>>use "that".
Eliminate D,E

I think we can eliminate C on the grounds that the press reports will happen in the future..C uses present tense..

Explanations for A and B please!!

You answered your Question.

Subjunctive is formed with "That" + "Infinitive form of the verb"

(A) Condition that be named
(B) cONDITION that will be named

Defn of Subjunctive Mood

The subjunctive mood is the verb form used to express a command, a wish, a suggestion or a condition that is contrary to fact. A verb in the subjunctive mood may have a different form to one with the same subject which is not in the subjunctive mood.

Dont restrict your answers to Bossy Verbs.

D. of not having their names
E. of not naming them


B and C present the pattern in which the verb form of of subjuctive mood is used. so, "will" and "are" are wrong

we need to show why D and E is wrong. this is important,

not showing properly why d and e is wrong is not understanding properly the trick gmat use on all sc problems.

if you like my posting, give me a kudos to encourage me to post.
