subjunctive mood ... X requires that Y be Z

I choose A

In B -> "should be" is wrong

C,D, and E -> "to pay" not the right usage "here".

I will go with C

because the sentence says 'requires of both public and private employers ' therefore I think 'to pay' should follow.

what is the OA

C has "pay the same in jobs"

I am not sure if "in" is the right preposition for pay. You pay for something, not in something

Still hold A as my choice ... What is the OA bigtreezl ??

E. to pay as much for jobs historically held by women as for a job demanding comparable skills

in option E , "for jobs" is being paralleled to "for a job"

and in E we have "demanding" , I am not sure if we can use demanding when the correct word should be requiring.... There definitely is a difference between them

Please note the parallelism error in E. I have pointed them in above post.

Also I am confused in A- whether it is talking of comparable skill held by men or jobs are held by men.
