idiom is :require that X Y OR require X to Y

Local state regulations require that a company disclose to its associates when a
security breach may have allowed someone to steal a person's name and social
security number, driver's license number or customer account numbers from their files
or computer systems.




1-meaning analysis:
local states regulations require that a company disclose to its associates when a problem occurs
now what is the problem: when security breach allowed someone to steal the company's customers information from the company's files and computer systems

2-error analysis:
there is no SV error
there is no verb tense error
Pronoun error usage of pronoun "their" is wrong because "their" here refers to "customers" while according to the meaning analysis we know that this information might be stolen from the company's files and computer system so the pronoun should be "its" instead of "their"
there is no modifier error present
there is no llism issue :the information that someone might steal form company's files or computer systems correctly expressed in parallel form.
there is no idiom error the correct idiom is "require X Y", or "require that+ subjunctive form of the verb"

3- POE:


A. that a company disclose to its associates when a security breach may have allowed
someone to steal a person's name and social security number, driver's license
number or customer account numbers from their files or computer systems

idiom error as it discussed


B. a company disclosing to its associates when a security breach may have allowed
someone to steal a person's name and social security number, driver's license
number or customer account numbers from their files or computer systems
same error + idiom error

C. that a company disclose to its associates when a security breach may have allowed
someone to steal a person's name and social security number, driver's license
number or customer account numbers from its files or computer systems
correct as is


D. a company that it should disclose to its associates whether a security breach may
have allowed someone to steal a person's name and social security number, driver's
license number or customer account numbers from their files or computer systems

"should" should not be used in subjunctive mood
I think the usage of whether is not correct here
pronoun error


E. that a company be disclosing to its associates when a security breach may have
allowed someone to steal a person's name and social security number, driver's
license number or customer account numbers from its files or computer systems
be disclosing is not correct

A. that a company disclose to its associates when a security breach may have allowed
someone to steal a person's name and social security number, driver's license
number or customer account numbers from their files or computer systems
>>Use of their is incorrect


B. a company disclosing to its associates when a security breach may have allowed
someone to steal a person's name and social security number, driver's license
number or customer account numbers from their files or computer systems
>>Use of their is incorrect
Furthermore, require should be followed by that to convey the idea. If you look closely 'a company' has no main verb.

C. that a company disclose to its associates when a security breach may have allowed
someone to steal a person's name and social security number, driver's license
number or customer account numbers from its files or computer systems
>>Correct

D. a company that it should disclose to its associates whether a security breach may
have allowed someone to steal a person's name and social security number, driver's
license number or customer account numbers from their files or computer systems
>>Use of their is incorrect
Also usage of should with require is wrong.

E. that a company be disclosing to its associates when a security breach may have
allowed someone to steal a person's name and social security number, driver's
license number or customer account numbers from its files or computer systems
>>'that a company be disclosing' looks awkward

Hope it helps!!
