yes company is one and the retiring employee should belong to it; therefore E is out since it does not associate retiring employee to the company.

I got to say that option in A is having "A company allows" which is actually correct since allows is a singular verb.
Looking at option C it says that "A company allow " here allow is not a singular verb since this statement refers to "A company "

How would we come to a conclusion regarding this other than deciding "their" and "its" in these statements.
I chose A......
Can anyone give me reasons now to evaluate this argument..Will be most helpful since i am taking gmat on sep5.

subjunctive mood and I think mandate should be followed by "that"

Is there a grammar rule that makes "allows" here to be "allow" following mandate? Normally, option A should be correct. So, I am guessing that mandate to allow is somehow a grammar exception. Any ideas?

"Demand" is a subjunctive verb.
Look for "subjunctive verbs + gmat" on google, and you will find the answer ;)

Mandate > subjunctive mood (Use simple form of the verb) and also here we need a that

(A) that a company allows their retiring employees who would otherwise lose group health care coverage to continue

Their should be "its"

(B) companies to allow their retiring employees who would otherwise lose group health care coverage that they can continue

We need a that

(C) that a company allow its retiring employees who would otherwise lose group health care coverage to continue

Perfect with no errors , Simple form "allow"

(D) companies allowing a retiring employee whose group health care coverage would otherwise be lost the continuation of

awkward construction

(E) companies to allow a retiring employee whose group health care coverage would otherwise be lost the continuation of

awkward construction

This is the OA for a particular question:

The new regulations mandate that a company allow its retiring employees who would otherwise lose group health care coverage to continue the same insurance at their own expense for a specific period.

So the correct pattern can be: 1. X mandate that a company allow Y.

My doubt is, why do we use 'allow' and not 'allows'?

Because if I were to use recommend instead, which is another bossy verb, I would have, say,

2. I recommend that a company allow Y.
or
3. I recommend that Tom go to school.

This does not flow easily on my tongue. Are 1, 2 & 3 really correct usages of bare infinitives?

(sorry, this is a question from the Manhattan Review pdf, not the GMAT paper tests).

Hi AjayendraSingh ,

Yes, these are called subjunctive verbs. They take plural verb after that, no matter the nature of the subject.

You can read more about these verbs here:

we have three moods in english grammar
1)Indicative
2) Imperative
3) Subjunctive
The above mentioned sentence is in subjunctive mood and is command subjunctive.
whenever you see words (bossy verbs) such as Demand, Dictate, Recommend, Request, Stipulate, Suggest, Insist, Mandate, Propose. Be sure they
all express command subjunctive
In the above question "mandate: indicats that
To form sentence with these verb. the structure looks like this
Subject+ (Bossy verb) that Subject + verb in its base form
Verb in its base form means in all the sitution you need to use verb without "s" even when the sentence subject in third person singular humber
ex
As we know he runs correct but in subjunctive mood he run, also never change the verb tense of base form verb
I demanded that he run correct. we cannot use runs.
