A. we should replace chips and sweetened soft drinks with healthier raw veggies, fruits, whole-grain biscuits and low-fat cheese. - use of should is incorrect with "suggest"
B. one replaces chips and sweetened soft drinks for healthier raw veggies, fruits, whole-grain biscuits and low- fat cheese. -unidiomatic
C. we replace chips and sweetened soft drinks with healthier raw veggies, fruits, whole-grain biscuits and low-fat cheese. - correct
D. us replace chips and sweetened soft drinks with healthier raw veggies, fruits, whole-grain biscuits or low-fat cheese. -passive noun can not be used in the place of subject
E. we replace chips as well as sweetened soft drinks with healthier raw veggies including fruits, whole-grain biscuits and low-fat cheese. - incorrectly suggests that veggies include fruits and biscuits..alters the intent

Replace with - is the correct idiom

+1 C

Suggest is command subjunctive so it should be C as CS takes verb with an s.

I would like to add one more thing

The word "suggest" doesn't always take command - subjective
For example, the following sentence is correct

scientists suggest that the moon was formed from part of the Earth .

SUGGEST can be used in conjunction with SHOULD/MUST/WILL/MIGHT/CAN etc. This is NOT a repetition.
A search for ""suggest that we should"" gives 12M results in google.
If that doesn't convince you, look at OG 12 question number 13.

easy one .
presence of 'suggest' suggests the subjunctive mood. 'should' is wrong in original sentence.
option C is best in all aspects , didnt even see D,E .

Where do we not use 'should'? The usage in this sentence sounded pretty natural.

Is it that we don't use it with someone "suggesting" something?

Thanks!

It's called subjunctive mood - something that the GMAT loves to test. Read up

First is with 'wish'; off the top of my head, 'wish' is the only word that uses this form.
I wish that he were here.
I wish that I had a million dollars
Use wish, that, and the past tense of the verb; if using 'to be' as the verb, always use were, regardless of the plurality of the object. This expresses contrary-to-fact desires

Second is the conditional.
If he were here, I would be happy.
If I had a million dollars, I'd buy you a fur coat.
It uses if, were (or rarely another past-tense verb), and would, to express a condition and a consequence that are both contrary to fact.

Third is demands, requests, and suggestions.
I recommend that you work hard every day to prepare for the GMAT.
I suggest that you avoid real fur coats. They're cruel.
They use a word indicating an imperative to act in a contrary-to-fact manner, the word 'that', and the bare infinitive of the verb.

Subjunctive word (such as demand, suggest, recommend, require, order, mandate) + that + NOUN + BASE FORM of the VERB (e.g., be, go, stop, run, excel) i.e., the infinitive without the to part.

The structure will be

demand/suggest/recommend/ require/order/ mandate + that + Noun + Base form of Verb

First take a look at the rules about command subjunctive:

Command subjunctive mood is used alongwith certain bossy verbs such as demand, require, propose etc. When such verbs are used the action that is demanded / required /proposed should take the command subjunctive mood, i.e. the raw form of verb, the form you would use to command someone something. e.g.

Be physically fit, Arunpriya!
I demand that you be physically fit.

Here demand is the bossy verb, and it requires a command subjunctive mood for the action demanded (be).

Another example ..... observe that the usage of simple present is wrong in the second sentence below!

Close the department !
The management requires that the department close....right.
The management requires that the department closes.... wrong !!
The management requires that the department should be closed... wrong again !

Here requires is the bossy verb, and it requires a command subjunctive mood for the action required (close)

Now coming back to your query.......

TheGMATGameRussia is trying to say that we can use should instead of the hypothetical subjunctive alon with a bossy verb - i.e. following usage is correct:

The management requires that the department should be closed.

It is true that the above usage is seen in British English, but in strict GMAT terms generally the command subjunctive form is valid with a bossy verb. Nonetheless as TheGMATGameRussia pointed out the British style may have been used in a rare occasion - cannot cross-check since I do not have the OG12.

Nutritionists suggest that we should replace chips and sweetened soft drinks with healthier raw veggies, fruits, whole-grain biscuits and low-fat cheese.

A subjunctive mood issue.

A. we should replace chips and sweetened soft drinks with healthier raw veggies, fruits, whole-grain biscuits and low-fat cheese. --- 'should replace' is wrong in subjunctive mood

B. one replaces chips and sweetened soft drinks for healthier raw veggies, fruits,whole-grain biscuits and low- fat cheese. ... 1. replaces is wrong in the subjunctive. 2. replace for is a wrong idiom. replace with is the correct usage.

C. we replace chips and sweetened soft drinks with healthier raw veggies, fruits, whole-grain biscuits and low-fat cheese.... Answer choice

D. us replace chips and sweetened soft drinks with healthier raw veggies, fruits,whole-grain biscuits or low-fat cheese. ... 1. 'suggest us replace' is ungrammatical. 2. or low fat cheese is altered meaning.

E. we replace chips as well as sweetened soft drinks with healthier raw veggies including fruits, whole-grain biscuits, and low-fat cheese ... 1.replace chips as well as soft drinks is incorrect. Both are equal-weight components and hence the conjunction 'and' is necessary. 2. veggies including blah, blah is an altered intent as if veggies include fruits, biscuits, and cheese.
