A. argues about women’s education being commensurate with men and asks equal standard in judgment of morality

Parallelism error. "women’s education" is compared to "men" and not "men's education" INCORRECT

B. argues about women educating commensurately with men asking equal standard in judging morality

Meaning error. It incorrectly says that author is arguing about women and not women's education. INCORRECT

C. asks women’s education to be commensurate with men and argues equally moral standard judgment

Parallelism error. "women’s education" is compared to "men" and not "men's education" INCORRECT

D. argues that women’s education be commensurate with men’s and asks for equality of standard in judgment of morality

"argues" is the subjunctive word followed by 'that" and the verb is used in the base form "be" CORRECT

E. asks for a woman’s education to be commensurate with that of a man and argues for equal standard in judging morality

Meaning error. "asks" and "argues" reversed their roles. INCORRECT

Hence option D

It's D.

Split 1:
Women's education should be compared with men's education and not with men.

Eliminate A,B,C

Split 2:
Check for the intended meaning.
Argues and ask should be placed where they are providing the intended meaning
Eliminate E

Hence D is the answer

The author of any book or article argues but never asks so c and e are out....the use of being in A is wrong n women education is compared with men; hence A is wrong
B changes meaning as writer argues about women's eduction...not about women; hence wrong..D is answer

Is "argues that " correct idiomatically? I thought it should have been argues with/for.
Thats why picked E.

This a case of subjunctive mood. and argue is among one of the verb which, if used as subjunctive mood then followed by 'that'.

Any official or MGMAT or Magoosh example of 'argue' as a subjunctive verb?

Well daagh sir, In official explanation it is presented as this. I don't have an example as such from these given sources. I understand this situation as mandate/recommendation, So given verb should be subjunctive. I also had same doubt earlier , So researched a bit. Found this link which says and I Quote

"However, your example is quite different. "Argued" doesn't normally have a mandative meaning. Perhaps, if you interpreted "argued" to mean "recommended", you could use a subjunctive here, "

https://english.stackexchange.com/quest ... ter-argued

Although I am not sure, it is in scope of GMAT, given this situation with GMAT and debatable usage.

Source - expert global

My choice is D as it properly compares women's education with that of men's and uses "that" after argues.
