why allow should be in singular form, as per my understanding subject of the verb is 'board' here.
And if relaxations is the subject then please explain how

Hi mikemcgarry , daagh ,
relaxations that Censorship Board allow / allows ?

Isn't the Board a single subject and that requires a single verb instead of plural allow. Please someone throw some light here. It is really bugging me where am going wrong.

I am a magoosh subscriber. Based on it's video's, am getting confused over this stuff.

I saw that option C only uses the correct Sub + Verb agreement. The censorship board (Singular Subject) + allows (singular verb). Please explain.

The form "allow" is NOT singular (singular form is "allows"). Did you mean why plural verb "allow" is used with singular subject "board"? If this is your query, then following is the explanation:

Here the command subjunctive is used, and hence the bare form of the verb "allow". Compare with another example of command subjunctive:

Our demand that the manager STEP down (not steps down) was ignored.

Hi Sayantanc2k,
Dont you think that the rule of rule of subjunctive is violated here.
Generally subjunctive looks like- (The person/body giving the command) (nature of the command) that (the person receiving the command)
Example- He demanded that Sunny leave the house.
But in option D, which is the OA, We dont have a proper subjunctive format. So, how can one be sure whether the sentence is in subjunctive mood. Please help

D) Proponents consider relaxations that Censorship Board allow production houses each year
