Standard police procedure requires that an officer interview witnesses separately rather than together.
(a) Standard police procedure requires that an officer interview witnesses separately rather than together-->IMO correct

(b) A requirement, according to standard police procedure, is that an officer interview witness separately rather than interviewing them together-->not //

(c) Standard police procedure requires an officer to interview witnesses separately rather than to interview them together--> i can think of the grammar wrong here, i can see only that A is more concise

(d) It is required in standard police procedure that an officer interviews witnesses separately, not together
(e) Standard police procedure requires that an officer interviews witnesses separately rather than together
"Require" is subjunctive V. Therefore, the verb after "require to" or "require that" has to be bare form verb (no -s, no -ed)--> eliminate E,D

requires - is a bossy verb and signals use of subjunctive verb form hence - ....requires that an officer interview....A is correct

"requires" is the main verb and requires subjunctive form. Hence "requires that".

"interview" is the second verb is always in the infinitve form (without "to" and without "s")...just plain verb.

A is correct. C is also correct but I think it is wordy.

Ok if c was

Standard police procedure requires an officer to interview witnesses separately rather than together ( if its possible in GMAT) which one should be prefer. The subjunctive form or c with IDIOM " requires X to do y " .

On what grammar rule can we say no C other than being less wordy?
