The original sentence has three grammatical errors:

1. Tense error - with "has said" (present tense), it should be "will" and not "would"
2. Preposition error - instead of "policies of individuals", it should be "policies for individuals"
3. Preposition error - "since" should be used only for past events; here it is a future event, therefore "after"

Choice C eliminates all the three errors.

C. MetLife is saying that it will stop underwriting long‐term new care policies for individuals after December.
D. MetLife said that it would stop underwriting new long‐term care policies for individuals after December.
E. MetLife said it would be stopping underwriting new long‐term care policies for individuals after December.


In A, there are several errors
1) "of individuals". This is trying to show that it is the individual's policies. But the correct sense is "policies for individuals".
2) "since". Since is trying to show that they have already stopped underwriting.
The correct meaning is "they will stop underwriting" which is in future, hence the usage of since is incorrect.

In B, "they" is trying to say that MetLife is plural, but since it is a company "it" should be used rather than "they".
Also, "underwriting of new long-term" is incorrect usage.

In C, "is saying" tries to show that MetLife is still saying. Incorrect.
We need "said".

In D, "said" is correct verb form
Also "that" is correctly used.
"policies for" is correct.
"after December" is also correct.

Therefore, D is Correct.

In E, "that" is missing after said.
"be stopping" is also incorrect verb form.

In this question, option D
Metlife SAID, .. that it WOULD – both past tense
underwrite………. after december? (in the future) ??

should it not be — Metlife said, that it will (present tense if takes future tense action) and after december.

Please correct me if I’m wrong.

Citing well‐known challenges to the long‐term care insurance industry, MetLife has said that it would stop underwriting new long‐term care policies of individuals since December.

A. MetLife has said that it would stop underwriting new long‐term care policies of individuals since December.Present perfect "has said" and future conditional "would stop" do not match.

B. MetLife said that they would stop underwriting of new long‐term care policies for individuals from December.Tense matches but pronoun error.

C. MetLife is saying that it will stop underwriting long‐term new care policies for individuals after December.Tense is okay but the placement of "new" changes the meaning

D. MetLife said that it would stop underwriting new long‐term care policies for individuals after December.

E. MetLife said it would be stopping underwriting new long‐term care policies for individuals after December.

Answer: D

Choice 'C' is wrong as "Metlife is saying" is wrong . No need of continuous tense.

Choice D is correct. It removes all the errors pointed by you earlier.
