Only (B) used "to pay".

I will go for D. "Pay for" seems to be more appropriate here. The only difference here in A/D is .. pay for and Pay an. I think Pay for sounds better.

Go for D.

whats wrong with E?

to demand is the right idiom, should pay seems logical here?

D is my other choice....

(A) demanding that private developers pay an increased share of the costs of expanding
(B) demanding private developers to pay for an increased share of the costs of expanding
(C) demanding payment by private developers for an increased share of the costs of expanding
(D) to demand that private developers pay for an increased share of the costs to expand
(E) to demand that private developers should pay an increased share of the costs to expand

I will pick A.

Demand someone do something, you don't need "to" after "demand".

In addition, Pay \$\$ for something is the correct usage

Yes, I see why I was wrong.
The sentence is:

Municipalities have begun to demand that private developers pay for an increased share of the costs to expand the current road networks, sewer systems, and other public services to accomodate new development projects.

So it is (D). Guess it is another trap that I just fell in. :p
