I think A is fine...

first of I think the idiom is require...that...so we can narrow down to A, B and C

now B and C dont seem || as they are comparing "jobs" with "job" held by men....

THe idiom is require that X Y or the other use of require is require X to Y

is the question correct? i mean skill should be skills, right?

Then A is correct- a subjunctive case...

Jobs must be compared to jobs, thus B and E are out. Pay should be followed by preposition for or no preposition rather than in, C is out. For D, IMO, pay should have an object here.
I choose A.

Yeah, the question itself reads pretty awkward. If it is supposed to be a tough one, , I'll go with A as did Himalaya!
"requires of" should be followed by "that". So, C,D and E are out!
"should be the same" in B is wrong! "requires that pay be the same" as in A is the most appropriate choice, IMO.

A is the lesser of the five evils, even though it is not a perfect sentence. Let the differences among the sentences guide you... Laxieqv zeroed in on the key comparison here: jobs to jobs.
