yes company is one and the retiring employee should belong to it; therefore E is out since it does not associate retiring employee to the company.

I got to say that option in A is having "A company allows" which is actually correct since allows is a singular verb.
Looking at option C it says that "A company allow " here allow is not a singular verb since this statement refers to "A company "

How would we come to a conclusion regarding this other than deciding "their" and "its" in these statements.
I chose A......
Can anyone give me reasons now to evaluate this argument..Will be most helpful since i am taking gmat on sep5.

Is there a grammar rule that makes "allows" here to be "allow" following mandate? Normally, option A should be correct. So, I am guessing that mandate to allow is somehow a grammar exception. Any ideas?

"Demand" is a subjunctive verb.
Look for "subjunctive verbs + gmat" on google, and you will find the answer

I went with C for Subject -Verb agreement. 'A Company' and 'its' agree with each other

C. Mandate is bossy/imperative verb. So it requires construction similar to that in C. By connecting 'retiring employees' to 'their' in non-underlined part, the sentence provides intended meaning.

C should have allows since company is plural (its is singular and so company allows NOT allow)

Mandate > subjunctive mood (Use simple form of the verb) and also here we need a that

(A) that a company allows their retiring employees who would otherwise lose group health care coverage to continue

Their should be "its"

(B) companies to allow their retiring employees who would otherwise lose group health care coverage that they can continue

We need a that

(C) that a company allow its retiring employees who would otherwise lose group health care coverage to continue

Perfect with no errors , Simple form "allow"

(D) companies allowing a retiring employee whose group health care coverage would otherwise be lost the continuation of

awkward construction

(E) companies to allow a retiring employee whose group health care coverage would otherwise be lost the continuation of

awkward construction
