Its B or D and Why?

"investment officers" manage not "performance of the funds" but "the funds" itself. Moreover in Choice B "they" has no referent

B Vs D - D is the correct answer.

B:
investment officers' fees to be based on the performance of the funds they manage

In this case, "they" is referring to " investment officers' ", which is possesive noun that should have a posessive pronoun e.g their instead of they.

Its B or D and Why?

My ans is D
- Since 1986.. , implies that the situation still continues now--> present perfect tense. Eliminate A,B, and E.
-"allow..to" is prefer. (than "allow that")--> Eliminate C

To specifically answer xcusemeplz2009 question, it is D not B because of the v.tense.

Would anybody clarify what is the main difference between C and D? allow that vs. allow to specifically and also regarding the command subjunctive.

Thanks a lot I appreciate it

A,B, and E are out because of THEY. In all 3 there is no investment officers instead investment officers'
Now C and D .
In my opinion C can be eliminated in 2 ways
1) Idiom Allow To -- Allow Fees of xxxx TO
2) BE is used as subjunctive ( officers be based ) which is not required here

Subjunctive :
Is it essential that we be there -- OK
Is it essential that we should be there -- Not Ok because only root form of verb is required in subjunctive .
