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.

Re: The new regulations mandate [#permalink] New post 02 Sep 2009, 01:29
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.

subjunctive mood and I think mandate should be followed by "that"

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)
