what's the source of this question.

I believe that E would be the most correct answer if the "published" is replaced by "publish".

question is from scoretop forum. Apparently, it is testing the resumptive modifier, which is 'information' in this case in option D.
This was a tough one for me. There's no OE, but the general consensus was that, 'that' is unnecessary in B.

Construction with D.

Corporations will soon be required to report to the government whether they have the necessary reserves to pay the pension benefits earned by their employees, information that must also be published in annual reports to shareholders.

Option D cannot be correct.
Its a run on sentense. Some thing like IC,IC. It has to be IC, and IC or something else...

"information that must also be published in annual reports to shareholders" is a completely sentense. The fact that "THAT" is present in the sentense cannot avoid the fact that we need
conjuction "and","but" .... to join the ICs.

D makes no sense. OA could be wrong.

Parallelism is the key here. A is required to (verb present tense)..., and (verb present tense)...

I picked D and believe its correct answer.

The last clause "information that must also be published in annual reports to shareholders." gives more information about "pension benefits earned by their employees"

This is not parallelism question in my opinion.

The sentence has coordination issue.

(A) earned by their employees and that the information be published [ required to report and be published cannot stand on the same coordination level – be published is a additional information that must be subordinated – eliminate it]

(B) that their employees earned and that the information be published [ required to report and be published cannot stand on the same coordination level – be published is a additional information that must be subordinated – eliminate it]

(C) that was earned by their employees with the information being published [being Is almost always wrong in the GMAT – eliminate it]

(D) earned by their employees, information that must also be published [Hold it]

(E) earned by their employees and published the information [ required to report and be published cannot stand on the same coordination level – be published is a additional information that must be subordinated – eliminate it]

Answer cannot be D. It is B because of ll ism.

Source must be Kaplan800 or OG11. I faced this question several times in one of these sources and OE emphasized // ism.

Corporations will soon be required to report to the government whether they have the necessary reserves to pay the pension benefits earned by their employees and that the information be published in annual reports to shareholders.

(A) earned by their employees and that the information be published

(B) that their employees earned and that the information be published

(C) that was earned by their employees with the information being published

(D) earned by their employees, information that must also be published
(E) earned by their employees and published the information

In case of "B" we have the following sentence:
Corporations will soon be requiredto report to the government whether they have the necessary reserves to pay the pension benefits that their employees earned and that the information be published in annual reports to shareholders.

Hence, the corporaitons will soon be required to report... and that the information be published..
I am not sure about || here..

In case of "E":
Corporations will soon be required to report to the government information that must also be published in annual reports to shareholders..
"information.." modifies "whether they have the necessary reserves to pay the pension benefits earned by their employees"
