I was between B and D, selected B. I think I found error in option B.

In option B construction is not fine. There is a scope to interpret sentence as following :
B
Gabriella Arrieta demanded that every child have right to an education
and
Gabriella Arrieta be protected from violence. << be protected is verb and subject of the sentence is eligible to take this verb.

In D protection is a noun after conjunction and subject cant take it without verb. Thus, technically it is parallel to an education.
D
Gabriella Arrieta demanded that every child have the right to an education
Gabriella Arrieta demanded that every child have the right to protection


Please post OE as well.

In command subjunctive form we use plural bare form of the verb.

we propose that school board DISBAND (not disbands).

HAS is singular form of the verb, but sentence demands command subjunctive bare form HAVE. << this is what I think reason behind use of have instead of has.

Hello Friend..!!

In my opinion, gabriella demanded something..here demanded is a subjunctive verb..it means its a trigger word and should have a plural verb..hence instead of has,have is used since have is plural..i know its very technical to say that its subjunctive and all that stuff :-D ..but heres a link which i believe u may find really helpful to know more bout this concept..here u go-
http://grockit.com/blog/gmat/2011/07/13 ... -strategy/







please kudos my post if u think its worth giving..I dont hesitate in accepting kudos mate :-D

You all are right about the subjunctive. "Every child has the right" sounds like a plain statement of fact. It's something you could say or remind people of, but it's not something you could demand.

Do we apply plural verbs to all subjunctive clauses, be it commanding subjunctive or infinitive subjunctive?

I do not quite agree here...the interpretation - Gabriella Arrieta be protected from violence. .. is so superbly weird..is also technically impossible too..Demanded that has to stick with Gabriella..@ I believe so

I think it is the fact that 'be protected' is weird: atleast it sounds weird

I have the right to be educated..so if some one is trying to teach me..no body can stop him from that..
I have the right to education...is what the girl wants to convey

Wat say?

I think we need that and that kind of construction to avoid any ambiguity to keep elements in parallel.

To pretzel: I don't know what you mean by the "infinitive subjunctive," but we aren't using a plural; we're using a bare infinitive. This is the "to" form without the word "to," and it's the same form you'd use if calling someone to action:

to run = Run! = I suggest that you run.
to market = Market your product using a wide array of proven strategies! (You know how you're always shouting that at people?) :) = I suggest that you market . . .

Justluck & Piyush, what I think you both are getting at is that we need parallelism: "be protected" is not parallel to "an education." It also cannot be the verb for the subject, "Gabriella."

However . . . there is one interpretation that allows us to save (B), at least in grammar terms. If we make "be protected" parallel with "have the right," the sentence is grammatically correct. Now, it does have a somewhat different meaning from the others: she demanded that the children be protected, rather than that they have a right to protection. Since all four of the others convey the other meaning (and there's nothing wrong with that meaning), we should go with the majority and choose (D).

I fell for the trap too. After seeing D as the right answer, I realized demanded is subjunctive

'demand' is a subjunctive verb that usually pairs singular subjects with plural forms of the verbs.

Example: I demanded that he raise his hand. Although 'he' is singular, subjunctive verb demand requires that we use plural form of the verb 'have'
