228. 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

[Reveal] Spoiler:

There is no correct answer according to me.....
if in option C the verb 'was' is replaced by 'were' then it might be the correct option.

228. 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 (and that the information has no parallel before and)
(B) that their employees earned and that the information be published - "pension benefits that someone earned" is wrong; its right to say "pension benefits earned"
(C) that was earned by their employees with the information being published
(D) earned by their employees, information that must also be published - correct (corps will be required to report to the govt. _____ , information ; here the ____ is the 'information' and information correctly modifies the phrase before ,(comma)
(E) earned by their employees and published the information - awkward

IMO D, what is OA?

IMO D.

First selected B but later found D makes more sense.

Read the part - and that the information be published...

Which info this sentence is taking about? Yes, this info is the report to the govt regarding the reserves to pay pension benefits...

So, in D, information that must also be published - clearly modifies the introdustory part -

report to the government whether they have the necessary reserves to pay the pension benefits earned by their employees

Corporations will be required to X (report... whether... employees) and (to) Y. Except X and Y are not parallel in the original. Eliminate A. Check the other choices for this same issue.

B is matching up the wrong info again - trying to make "that their employees earned" and "that the information" parallel, but that can't work. Then the second item would read "the pension benefits... that the information be published." Doesn't make sense. Eliminate B.

C and D remove the parallelism (the word "and" is gone). Skip those for a moment.

E again has a parallelism problem. Can't match it up with "whether they have" because "whether they have" is in present tense, while "have published" would be present perfect. If you're going to reuse "have" for a present perfect construction, then the first part also needs to be written in present perfect. (Example: She has written three books and published two. "has written... and (has) published.") Eliminate.

Back to C. Now, the meaning is messed up. It seems to be saying that the employees had something to do with the information being published? Eliminate. So D is the answer - only one left.

Now we've got this construction:
Corporations will soon be required to X (report whether they pay the benefits earned), information (referring back to X) that must (here's the requirement again!) be published...

So it maintains the original meaning (two things will be required), and it appropriately introduces the new word "information" to refer back to the entire concept discussed in X.

I have particular interest in the word 'information' in the sentence. What information does the sentence refer to..It has to refer to "they have the necessary reserves to pay the pension benefits earned by their employees ". Hence if there is a comma, there has to be a noun or a pronoun reference inorder to speak further about that information..

Hence taking this explanation..let me know if the sentence makes the intended meaning..

D for me.

The information to be published in annual reports is "whether they have the necessary reserves to pay the pension benefits earned by their employees".

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 [b] and that [/b]the information be published in annual reports to shareholders.

I am bit confused .. I think there should not be that after And.
If the sentence was "Corporations will soon be required to report to the government [strike]whether[/strike] that" , it would have been correct.

and moreover the clause before and is not in subjunctive but one after and is in subjunctive?

Am I missing sth?

Ans is Option D

it is an example of absolute phrase ( manhattan sc -modifier-advance)

"information that must also be published"...in option D working as absolute phrase with structure noun+modifier.... correctly modifying the preceding clause ......

Wow... this is the first question of absolute phrase i m encountered with ....
