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?

A. that they not be named
B. that their names will not be used
C. that their names are not used
D. of not having their names
E. of not naming them


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.
