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.

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

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.

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.

An international law regarding war crime states that once a foreign intruder is captured by officials, they are legally empowered to request that he imparts to them basic personal information.

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

Hi Abhimahna,

I was going through the conditional clauses and I came across this article: https://www.ef.com/english-resources/en ... nditional/

Shouldn't this be a question of the conditional clause as the question stem states that once a foreign intruder is captured by officials : if-statement in present tense ,i.e, If + simple present.

Therefore, the main clause should have the Will-statement, i.e., simple future.
