Hi chetan2u, GMATNinja

For Option A - "need only to cite" is correct usage or "need only cite". I eliminated Option A because "to" was missing.

Hi chetan2u, GMATNinja

For Option A - "need only to cite" is correct usage or "need only cite". I eliminated Option A because "to" was missing.



Actually it "need only cite" is correct here .. though I still have reservations on this usage...

"Need only cite" - is UK usage not USA usage... But this looks like a law or some sort of USA so I'd be skeptical about it... Try to look for other eliminating points ..

Difference between UK English and USA English

Excerpt from the link
"When Americans want to express a lack of obligation, they use the helping verb do with negative not followed by need. “You do not need to come to work today.” Brits drop the helping verb and contract not. “You needn’t come to work today.”
