Industry representatives maintain that the new privacy and data protection policies the regulatory body requires that all social networking sites contain no provisions for the transfer of user data to foreign governments.

(A) requires that all social networking sites

(B) require that all social networking sites

(C) requires of all social networking sites

(D) requires all social networking sites to

(E) require all social networking sites to

The correct answer is B.

This sentence is testing our knowledge on subject verb agreement and subjunctives.

The formula for using subjunctive is subject + verb + that + subject + verb in simple form. . .

So C, D and E are ruled out.

A is out because we need a plural verb.


SUBJUNCTIVE

The subjunctive is used to indicate that one person wants another person to do something. The simple form of the verb is used after certain other verbs and that is always used. If that is omitted then it changes the structure of the second verb to the infinitive.

We require that he come to the office.
We require him to come to the office.

The following verbs in the below list are used in a subjunctive sentence.
advise
ask
command
decree
demand
insist
move
order
prefer
propose
recommend
request
require
stipulate
suggest
urge

NOTE: The verb want is not included in the above list. Want is not used in a subjunctive sentence.

In the following formula, substitute one of the verbs from the list (in any tense).
subject + verb + that + subject + verb in simple form. . .

The pilot requested that everyone fasten their seatbelts.
My mother insists that I practice piano for an hour every day after school.
The general commanded that his men charge up the hill.
I propose that you do odd jobs to earn enough money for the trip.
The powerful king decreed that his birthday be a national holiday.

Impersonal expressions which have the same meaning as the verbs above use a form of the verb be followed by certain adjectives. This form of the subjunctive also uses a simple form of the verb following it.
advised
important
mandatory
necessary
obligatory
proposed
recommended
required
suggested
urgent
imperative

In the following formula, substitute one of the adjectives from the list above. The verb be can be in any singular tense (which agrees with the subject it).
.
it + be + adjective + that + subject + verb in simple form. . .
It was advised that we wear our lifejackets because of the bad weather.
It is obligatory that you present your passport at the airport.
It is important that they catch the first train.
It has been suggested that we arrive early for the ceremony.
It was proposed that the mayor attend the meeting at city hall
.

The entire bold part is taken from the GMAT club grammar book.

Thank you.
