Will choose B

C makes it seem as if "their names do not appear in newspapers" and "their speaking to the press" happen at the same time. This is not true - and hence we need to place "names not used in the newspaper" in future to sequence the events appropriately

hmmm..."A"....I think there is a subjunctive mood here, also the sentence in past tense...so "B" is not right in saying "their names will"...it shud use "would"

"condition" "be" are the pointers right for the subjunctive in this sentence?

the officials express the desire that the press wont mention their names => thats is why subjunctive mood is used. so we use the base form of the verb => that is "be"
