It has to be "C".

This is subjunctive mood SC. All other choices fail to keep the mood.

Some of the options suggest that parents be restrained......every child's dream come true.

It s C indeed.
I still don't understand how the sentence can make sense (THE THAT):

It is subjunctive. require + that + sb + V1

concur with this one.

Yes, but here, it 's require + the + that + sb ..... Does that make sense??

I picked C. Some of the choices imply (inlcuding A) that parents should be restrained in the car-seat.

"..... require + the + that + sb ....." doesnot make any sense but looking your answer choices you forget to underline "the", the one that you are talking.

Now, ".... require + that + sb + V1" perfectly make sense.

I didn't forget to underligne, I just copied it as it is in my test sheets.
This was the reason why I didn't choose that option. But the OA is C, I have to assume they have done a mistake, since you all gave the right answer without wondering if there could be something wrong.

bravo!

In choice A you have "the" at the beginning. That means it should have also been underlined..

It's clear from choice "A" that it's a mistake, "the" should be included in the underlined portion.

(A) - suggests it's the parents that needs to be restained
(B) - same problem as A
(D) - suggest age is sufficient to restrain the child
(E) - same problem as D

C is the best choice

If the OA is C, then doesn't the sentence mean that the children(under 5 years) should be avoided(restrained) giving a child safety seat.

As per the logic, children should be given the child safety seat and parents should be restrained from using it. If the sentence had some other word such as "insist" or "command" in place of the verb "restrain", then C would have definitely been correct

This sentence has confused me a lot now.
