for verbs like request, command, demand, ask etc subjunctive mood has to be used...which is..
ask that X BE done
demand that Y BE done etc
You can search in google for more info:), just type in subjunctive and you shall get loads of resources

Do "only on..." and "not on..." form a parallel structure? If so, A C E can be crossed out in the first place true?

option (B).

it is a case of subjunctive....hence we need 'that'

'them' refers to school districts

The administration is allowing "the local school districts" not the money. And its in Subjunctive mood because of demand. So clearly B.

the seocnd part of the sentence focusses on utilsation of money and money has to be the subjerct in the first part ...

other wise it is a case of subjunctive..and hence use of word be ...

To what does "it" refer in B? Can not be to "the administration" since that noun is not in the sentence...

Thoughts on that?

+1 B

A. Wrong: Subjunctive mood is required. Passive voice. Misplaced modifier in "only"; it can be ambiguous.
B. Correct. "IT" refers to budget because both clauses are parallel. BUT is a parallel marker.
C. Wrong: Subjunctive mood is required. The comma is not necessary; there are not two clauses.
D. Wrong: subjunctive mood is required.
E. Wrong: subjunctive mood. "but it can only spend it" is ilogical.

D. local school districts are in control of the money, but it allows them to spend the money only
E. local school districts are to be in control of the money, but it can only spend it


go by meaning:
administration demanded that:
1.money is controlled by local school district.
2.school district can only spend this money on teachers, not on books, computers, or other materials or activities

only A (OA)fits the bill.
in option B : "but it allows them to spend the money only" referent of "it" is unclear and also original meaning has distorted!!
