1. This is the classic command subjunctive using the bossy word requires; So, the connector ‘that’ is a mandatory requirement. Drop B, D and E.
2. Between A and C: In A, ‘a professor and their’ is a subject-pronoun number error.
3. So C is the choice.

Require that X be Y : Correct Idiomatic Usage, none but (C) expresses it correctly...

Hi deevanshu,

Thank you for your question. Let's start by looking at the obvious differences between each answer, and see if we can narrow them down to the correct one. Here are a few clear differences that jump out after looking over things quickly:

1. a professor / that professors
2. extra-help / extrahelp
3. their students / his students

Let's start with #1 on the list: a professor / that professors. Whichever we choose should agree in number with any verbs involved, so let's see if they work based on subject-verb agreement (subject in red, verb in green):

(A) that a professor with classes of more than 60 students schedule smaller extra-help sessions for their students before or after the standard classes (singular subject/plural verb = NO AGREEMENT)
(B) a professor with classes of more than 60 students schedule smaller extrahelp sessions for their students before or after the standard classes (singular subject/plural verb = NO AGREEMENT)
(C) that professors with classes of more than 60 students schedule smaller extra-help sessions for their students before or after the standard classes (plural subject/plural verb = CORRECT AGREEMENT)
(D) a professor with classes of more than 60 students to schedule smaller extrahelp sessions for their students before the standard classes or after (singular subject/plural verb = NO AGREEMENT)
(E) a professor with classes of more than 60 students schedule smaller extrahelp sessions for his students, before or after the standard classes (singular subject/plural verb = NO AGREEMENT)

After only looking at the beginning of each answer, and making sure it uses proper subject-verb agreement, it's clear that C is the only answer that works. Therefore, we have our correct answer without having to look at any of the other issues.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



There are two possible structures. You require someone to do something, or you require that somebody do something. The latter is a use of the subjunctive. E does not have either of these possible structures. Options A, B and D incorrectly use ‘a professor’ with ‘their’. Choice C is the correct answer.
