A) that applicants should be physically fit enough to endure the demanding - "require" and "should" are redundant

(B) that applicants be physically fit enough to endure the demanding - Correct

(C) applicants should have enough physical fitness to allow enduring the demands of - require "that" is missing

(D) applicants are physically fit enough as to endure the demands of - require "that" is missing

(E) physical fitness in applicants, enough for endurance of demanding - distorts the meaning
I am not sure whether my explanation is correct. It will be helpful if somebody can correct.

Demand\Request needs the usage of subjunctive verb. Only option B satisfies this criteria.

1) Requires should be followed by that in the formal environment of GMAT. Deleting that is colloquial and not upto GMAT standards.

Only A and B left

Requires that followed by should is redundant. A is out.

So B is the correct answer.

This is a case of the so-called command subjunctive mood. This 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, Priya!
I demand that you be physically fit.

Here demand is the bossy verb here, 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).
