D : to pay the same regardless of historically held by women of comparable skills
E : to pay as much for jobs historians for a job demanding comparable skills

In this case idiom is :

require of X that "subj" + infinitive form of verb

it is in subjunctive mood.

idioms are :

require that (subjuctive)
require X to do Y
require of X that (subjunctive with (subj + infinitive))

E is also wrong for incorrect idiom 'as much' ==> 'as much as'

As in subjunctive mood, B is wrong for the usage of 'should'.

also, In C, IMO, it should 'pay for jobs' not 'pay in jobs'

D also seems awkward, pay same (for what??
'regardless of historically held by women of comparable skills' is modifying what?

Please correct me wherever I am wrong!

I have dowloaded the new version of brutal SC and seen the option E as above...It is completing the idiom as much x as Y.....

Pls throw some light why E is wrong here

In this case , other than idiom issue, comparison is made between jobs(plural) and job(singular), and if you note in the last in the non-underlined section 'are' needs plural subject.

IMO C.

The verb of the sentence is a bossy Verb REQUIRE and should always follow THAT. Format should be Bossy Verb + THAT +......

SO option A and B are out of the game. In addition B is also having SHOULD which should NEVER be there when the sentence is having a Bossy Verb.

From C, D and E, D and E are awkward.

So the option I choose is C. The sentence is having a Bossy Verb followed an Infinitive TO PAY (since THAT is not immdiately followed) and is also having elements that are parallel in structure. .

The idiom requires X to Y needs to be followed.

Clear C.

I believe idiom for require is:
require of X to do Y (I believe that with and without "of" is same idiom)
require that X do Y.

hi mates,

IMO C

A and B out: "I require you to do this" or "I required that he do this"
E out: it should be "as much as"

Between C and D, D sounds wordy to me

OA ans Source?

Cheers

Thanks

I think use of 'that' is appropriate here.

C is wrong also because pay 'for' a job is correct not pay 'in' a job
B is out because of 'should'
D is very wordy and E talks about historians

３． Legislation in the Canadian province of Ontario requires of both public and private employers that pay be the same for jobs historically held by women as for jobs requiring comparable skill that are usually held by men.

(A) that pay be the same for jobs historically held by women as for jobs requiring comparable skill that are
(B) that pay for jobs historically held by women should be the same as for a job requiring comparable skills
(C) to pay the same in jobs historically held by women as in jobs of comparable skill that are
(D) to pay the same regardless of whether a job was historically held by women or is one demanding comparable skills

this is an OG-10 question
official explanation:

Choice A is best. In choice B, should is illogical after requires, or at least unnecessary, and so is better omitted;
in choices B and E, job does not agree in number with jobs; and in choices B, D, and E, the wording illogically
describes the comparable skills rather than the jobs as being "usually held by men." Choices C, D, and E
produce the ungrammatical construction requires of... employers to pay, in which of makes the phrase
incorrect. In C, the use of in rather than for is unidiomatic, and jobs of comparable skill confusedly suggests
that the jobs rather than the workers possess the skills. In D, the phrase beginning regardless ... is awkward
and wordy in addition to being illogical.

+1 A

The idiom is "pay...for"
Subjunctive mood is required.

If the "of" in the part " requires of both public and private employers" is removed, then the correct answer will change. Is this understanding correct?

The idiomatic construction "requires that X do Y" is applicable here. Correct?

After removal of the "of", the correct idiomatic construction would be "requires X to do Y".

I got this answer wrong because I got confused between these idioms. Please help me understand the difference with respect to the given question. TIA.

"pay for" is the correct usage, and "pay in" is incorrect. So, choice C is incorrect. Choice B, "should" is incorrect. D and E are lack of "as" to make the parallelism.
