(A) be appointed
(B) be appointed to
(C) that is appointed to
(D) be appointed as
(E) get appointed as



(D) uses correct Subjunctive Usage
, X be Y


Alley requested that after her death, Tom be appointed as the board of the directorship.

" Request " Requires a subjunctive I agree.
But how can a person be appointed" as" the board of something?
Can a single person comprise a board ?

on the other hand I feel B uses the subjunctive correctly and makes the meaning clear.

subjunctive construction = bossy verb + that + subject + subjunctive

bossy verb + that + subject + subjunctive
(B) requested that Tom be ( appointed to the board of Directorship ).

Hence feels as though B should be OA.
Please enlighten ?

first i dont know what is board of directorship
I do know board of directors, myabe thats a source of mistake
but as i understand the meaning is board of directors. which usually consists a few or more people
as board of directors sounds like he will be the board and not within the board

Hi All,

Look at the source of this question. This question is selfmade. "BEAWARE".

I donot prefer to solve questions that are self made or from poor sources.

I agree with what stne said above.

This question is wrong.

I will regard this question as Z grade. :-D
