In one of the most surprising decisions in the history of Wardsville, the lumber company in the summer of 1994 responded to hundreds of angry residents requiring that it should pay restitution for selling faulty boards.
Choices
A requiring that it should
B requiring it to
C and their requirement to
D who required it to
E who required for it to

Between B&D, why do we pick D. I mean on what basis do we eliminate B?

In one of the most surprising decisions in the history of Wardsville, the lumber company in the summer of 1994 responded to hundreds of angry residents requiring that it should pay restitution for selling faulty boards.
Choices

B requiring it to
It is not clear what "requiring" modifies. "the company responded (...) requiring it", you can see that the structure is not logical, it seems that the company required "itself".
D who required it to
The presence of "who" clarifies the sentence. Now the residents "required". Correct

In my opinion is an incoclusive question. really really bad constructed.

What is the source ?' is impossible that it is from sources such as veritas (for instance) or OG......

Only confuse between B and D, but D is much better because of the modifier - who - is used precisely.
Picked D.

The action “required” is done by “hundreds of local residents”. They are the ones “who” did the action of requiring something. Therefore, use of “who” is correct in Choice D.

hi,
verb ing modifier modifies the preceeding noun...in this case resindents...
I dont think B is wrong because of this...

I eliminated A & B immediately because requiring hints that the subject of the sentence, lumber company, is doing the requiring rather that the residents. IMO
