We demand THAT HE BE here.

Note that propose can take an infinitive when there's no second subject:
The attorneys proposed to meet the following day.

In (E), "she" is redundant. "Scandalized in" unidiomatic, and also "should" is redundant with"suggesting".

During her presidency of the short-lived Woman’s State Temperance Society (1852-1853), Elizabeth Cady Stanton, as she was a staunch advocate of liberalized divorce laws, scandalized many of her most ardent supporters in her suggestion that drunkenness should be made sufficient cause for divorce.

(A) as she was a staunch advocate of liberalized divorce laws, scandalized many of her most ardent supporters in her suggestion that drunkenness should be - That must be used as "Suggest" is command subjunctive form. Also should can never be used in subjunctive form hence incorrect

(B) as she was a staunch advocate for liberalized divorce laws, scandalized many of her most ardent supporters by her suggestion of drunkenness being - Usage of being is incorrect here

(C) in being a staunch advocate for liberalized divorce laws, had scandalized many of her most ardent supporters with the suggestion of drunkenness being - Usage of being is incorrect here

(D) a staunch advocate of liberalized divorce laws, scandalized many of her most ardent supporters by suggesting that drunkenness be - CORRECT as suggest is subjunctive form so that will be used and be is used aptly here

(E) a staunch advocate of liberalized divorce laws, she scandalized many of her most ardent supporters in suggesting that drunkenness should be - Incorrect as she is redundant and should be and suggesting both cannot be used together

hazelnut sir Please suggest whether my reasoning is correct and POE

Also, keep in mind that identifying the suspect usage of -suggest- would have enabled you to eliminate answer choices B and C.

Idiomatic usages of suggest are:

- SUGGEST THAT ... IS/WILL BE
- SUGGEST THAT ... BE (Subjunctive)
- SUGGESTS

Suspect usages of suggest are:

- IS SUGGESTIVE OF.

B and C fall under the suspect usage of suggest and can therefore be eliminated.

The sentence is wrong as it starts with the present participle During. The noun just before the comma should be modified and a staunch advocate should refer to Elizabeth. Using this, options A,B,C are eliminated.

A staunch advocate modifies the noun Elizabeth so the pronoun she after the comma is unnecessary as “a staunch advocate….laws” is a non essential modifier. E is eliminated too.

The correct option is D.

If you like the explanation, do give Kudos!

by+doing
though+action noun
are used to show how the main action is perform. in the first, the doing is done by subject.

so, "by+suggesting" is idiomatic inhere.
