(A) to be in sympathy with

(B) to sympathize with

(C) for sympathizing with

(D) that they should, sympathize with

(E) that they should have sympathy for

Seems like subjunctive sentence error between D&E, D seems to be right.

For me, this boils down to B & C

Their desire to sympathize vs for sympathizing...

I would go for "desire to"

to be in Sympathy is correct, I think A should be the answer. In this context it means Rosenbergs is in harmony or concur with Communists.

I may be wrong, not an expert.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



The correct idiomatic expression is not ‘desire for plus gerund’. The correct expression is ‘desire to do something’. Eliminate C. Among the other options, B is shortest and simplest. Choice B is the correct answer.
