Some theory here:

The Present Subjunctive is used to express (and emphasize) urgency, importance, desirability, demand, order, suggestion, request.

The Present Subjunctive is used in subject subordinate clauses in sentences with the formal subject "It" after "it is necessary that; it is important that; it is imperative that; it is crucial that; it is vital that; it is essential that; it is urgent that; it is required that; it is advisable that; it is desirable that" and after other similar expressions.

The Present Subjunctive is also used in object subordinate clauses after "demand that; order that; command that; urge that; insist that; advise that; recommend that; suggest that; propose that; request that; ask that; beg that".

Well actually the word "proposed" is one of 9 words requiring the subjunctive on the GMAT:

propose / recommend / require / request / insist / suggest / mandate / ask / demand are all words which describe an attempt to influence or provoke someone else's action.

An easy way to remember them is by using the acronym PRRR IS MAD (Remember a Cat, which is mad). This acutally comes from the economist. Nice one to remember.

Hope it helps

what if option C started with 'as' instead of 'like'?

Wouldn't "As" then be an example and not a comparison? The sentence seems to be comparing Rudolph Virchow to these other pioneering scientists, not presenting him to be an example of one. Or am i just overthinking this?
