(E) require a minimum of $250,000 in malpractice coverage to be protected


Correct constructions of require are:
1) require that X Y
2) require X to Y
Almost everything is correct in A, but the "to be protected" destroys everything. It should rather be " to protect".
B and C are unidiomatic. C distorts the meaning too.
D is again unidiomatic.
E follows the rules and hence is the answer.

The difference between answers A and E is that the first includes the active verb form "to protect" at the end of the underlined part whereas answer E uses the passive form "to be protected." We need to use the passive because this part of the clause does not include the information who should be protected. If we use the active form, we need an object. In choice E we can see that it is "doctors" who require a minimum ... to be protected."

(E) require a minimum of $250,000 in malpractice coverage to be protected


I think both A and E are grammatically correct. But, considering the mood of the sentence, I think E is the correct choice, since the sentence is just conveying an opinion, NOT anything like suggestion,command or recommendation etc., evincing the subjunctive mood.
