Can you explain why the verb exercise is not conjugated "one exercices"?

Hi Abhishek009!
An answer to your question is simple. There is a modal verb "should" here and hence "one should acknowledges" sound awkward. Moreover, "acknowledge" should be parallel to "exercise". Hence we don't use "s" after verbs. Hope it is clear!

Yes thats absolutely true. Sorry for my late reply.

Subjunctive Rule in General:
Require for example is one of the nine verbs to which the Subjunctive rule applies (if it is followed by that). This means that the next verb after requires that should be in base form. More verbs where the subjunctive rule applies: propose/recommend/require/request/insist/suggest/mandate/ask/demand

As a citizen of any country, one should acknowledge that one is an integral part of a larger community and exercise their freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as uninfluential, forms the foundation of a democratic society.

1 the pronoun "one" doesn't match with "their" so Eliminate A. 2 "he" and "his" don't solve the pronoun issue so eliminate D. 3 "freedom to vote" doesn't agree with the plural "form" so eliminate E 4 "not being at all influential" is awkward and more extreme in meaning. A simple adjective after "regarded as" is neater.

A. one is an integral part of a larger community and exercise their freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as uninfluential, forms

B. one is an integral part of a larger community and exercise one's freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as not being at all influential, forms

C. one is an integral part of a larger community and exercise the freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as uninfluential, forms

D. he is an integral part of a larger community and exercise his freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as uninfluential, forms

E. one is an integral part of a larger community and exercise one's freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as uninfluential, form
