Hi GMAT club!

I did a practice test from Master GMAT and I had this question:

The answer provided id "D". In addition the explanation says that there are 9 verbs in which the subjunctive rule applies. "Require" is one of those 9 verbs.
Can you help me with the other 8?

Thanks.

Subjunctive verbs are also known as 'bossy verbs' in gmat circles. I can think of many such words:

require
order
request
mandate
recommend
suggest
demand
insist
essential

Instead of memorising these words just remember if the word sounds like an order or demand or if it indicates that something is essential its a bossy verb.

Why only nine? As far as I see, one can think of many more instances of command subjunctive verbs, nouns and adjectives as follows; The crux is not the word per se but the intention of command.
Verbs: Advice, advocate, ask, arrange, better, counsel, demand, desire, dictate direct, insist, instruct, intend, order, prey, prefer, plead, propose. Recommend, request, require, suggest, urge
Adjectives: Desirable, Advisable, Essential, Fundamental, Fitting, Imperative, Important, Necessary, Preferable, Urgent Vital
Nouns: Directive, instruction, intention, suggestion

"them" in the choice D correctly refers to "the officials".

As per my reasoning, both D and E are correct. Why D is preferred over E? Is this kind of the choices formed in GMAT's official ques.

It is preferable to use pronouns when there is no ambiguity:

Ram claims that Ram is an honest man.
Ram claims that he is an honest man.

The first sentence is awkward.

A. he imparts to them basic personal information
B. he would impart basic personal information to them
C. he will impart basic personal information to them
D. he impart basic personal information to them
E. he impart basic personal information to the officials

Simple use of Subjuntive: Require that + Plural. Hence, A, B and C are incorrect.

Out of D and E, 'them' in D is clearly reffering to the offials, so we donot need to specify officals, hence D is correct

Dears,
Page 72 in Sentence correction Manhatan, author mentions that repeat the noun is referable. Could you pls recheck
"If you are down to two answer choices that are absolutely identical, except that one has they (referring to executives earlier) and the other has these executives, go with the latter, just to be super-safe"

"them" could also refer to "crime states"
