I think
....laws requiring that... is not correct usage.
It should be
...laws requiring [something/someone]

With this thing in mind, I came down to D and E.

D gives you a feeling that laws require certain type of citizens attending prior hand.... This is not correct.

E makes sense IMO.

Feel free to suggest.

Should "that" not proceed requiring? As this is a subjunctive case, I thought it should and marked A as the answer. I request some inputs on this.

aartiydv09, we can use require/requiring with or without the subjunctive:

The law requires you to place recyclables in the appropriate bin.
The law requires that you place recyclables in the appropriate bin.

E uses the first of these forms, and that's fine.

There are some other issues with the sentence, though. It needs more articles before some of the nouns (the federal government, an independent tax regulatory body) and "attest prior hand" doesn't work. I think the intended meaning is more like "arrange in advance."

Hi Dmitry,

As mentioned subjunctive form can take either "that" or "to", which makes me wonder what makes answer a as wrong. The sentence looks correct in its original form

A and E are really interchangeable. The rest are all wrong, but I'd say there's no definitive answer to this one, especially since the rest of the sentence needs some changes.
