However parallel - a report to summarize - is to - have begun to demand, it is not the right idiom . -a report summarizing -is the correct expression Hence D is wrong.

no .. because of the reason i cited u can eliminate D and E
let me explain the rule in more detail
-there are certain verbs such as - recommend, request , suggest etc..tht use
THAT + SUBJECT+ COMMAND SUBJUNCTIVE
- Thn there are certain verbs such as -advice, allow etc tht require infinitive form i.e
TIGER WOODS was allowed TO PLAY..
Since there is a verb allow we have to use the infinitive form TO
However if there is a verb like DEMAND in falls in the first category and one cannot use TO with it ..
tht's the reason why D,E ARE OUT
- B is out because " THAT " is missing from the sentence
-C is out because it alters the meaning ..
hope this helps..

I answered A, thinking that 'report to summarize' sounded worse than 'report summarizing'.

But can someone explain why D's wrong?

I think begin + infinitive is idiomatically correct.
'a report to summarize,' sounds awkward in my ear, but I don't know why exactly.
does saying 'a report to' change its meaning slightly?

verbs such as " demand" takes only the command subjunctive i.e that + bare form of the verb , with such verbs we cannot use infinitive form " to " so tht's the reason why D is out ..

Quote:
Financial institutions have begun demanding that analysts design a report summarizing profit and loss data for the last five years.
(A) demanding that analysts design a report summarizing
(B) demanding analysts to design a report summarizing
(C) demanding designed reports of analysts summarizing
(D) to demand that analysts design a report to summarize
(E) to demand that analysts should design a report to summarize

I chose D over A initially.

I think the reason why A is correct is:

You don't say 'have begun to demand that...'
You say:
1. 'have begun to demand [something]...' --> e.g. '...they have begun to demand the same for themselves'
2. 'have begun to demand for [something]' --> e.g. '...have begun to demand for lower taxes'
3. 'have begun to demand from [others]'

Also, 'have begun' is used when talking about something you are doing. You have started it and you are still doing it. Example:

I have begun doing my homework.

So, in this case, 'have begun demanding that...' is a better choice.

Any thoughts?

You mean B is out for the reason you said.

because the demand has been posed in the past and it continues up to day, therefore the use of begin doing sth is correct in the original sentence.
The idiom "demand that + S + inf_V" is using properly

Therefore A is a correct answer

profit and loss data for the last five years.
(A) demanding that analysts design a report summarizing
(B) demanding analysts to design a report summarizing
(C) demanding designed reports of analysts summarizing
(D) to demand that analysts design a report to summarize
(E) to demand that analysts should design a report to summarize

1) began demanding - correct idiom, began to deman - incorrect idiom - D, E are out. Also, report to summanrize is wrong, as it means that the purpose of report was to summarize things.
2) C is out
3) demanding is subjunctive - so THAT is must. So B is out. Also the institiutions didnot demand directly to analysts. B is out.
ANSWER = A.
