(A) mandate that potential applicants be finished Correct, Right use of subjunctive case.

(B) mandate potential applicants to be finished Incorrect. That is missing after mandate.

(C) mandate that potential applicants will be finished Applicants will be finished? Doesn't make sense

(D) have a mandate for a potential applicant finishing Wrong. Subjunctive form is needed

(E) have a mandate to finish potential applicants Again Wrong. Subjunctive form is needed


Answer should be A

(A) mandate that potential applicants be finished-Subjunctive construction used correctly

(B) mandate potential applicants to be finished

(C) mandate that potential applicants will be finished

(D) have a mandate for a potential applicant finishing

Concept tested : Subjunctive Construction

Ans : A

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



The first thing you should ask yourself is whether the programs have something or do something? They do something. They mandate something of somebody else. That means that choices D and E are incorrect. Now you have to determine which tense is correct. Do you mandate that someone do something, or that someone to do something? Clearly not to do something. That means choice B can be eliminated. Choice C has the wrong tense, the future. The subjunctive is required after the construction ‘mandate that’. Choice A is the correct answer.
