Basing their opinion on fatality rates in road accidents, British road and safety groups propose that the driving age will be increased.

A. British road and safety groups propose that the driving age will be increased
B. British road and safety groups propose that the driving age increases
C. British road and safety groups propose that the driving age be increased
D. an increase in the driving age is proposed by British road and safety groups
E. British road and safety groups propose that the driving age has been increased


AC A;
This answer choice is grammatically incorrect. Propose 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 propose that should be in base form. However, will be increased is not in base form. What helps us identify this question as a Subjunctive question as well as identify the mistake is the following Stop Sign: propose/recommend/require/request/insist/suggest/mandate/ask/demand that. Whenever you come across this Stop Sign, make sure that the following verb is in its base form.

AC C;
This answer choice follows the Subjunctive rule by placing the base form verb be after the phrase propose that.

subjunctive mood requires base verb.
