B. Active and Require that subjunctive mood. However, structure is not parallel. but still B is proper.
E. Discrimination (singular) + has. D is out because "WAGES that favors" is not right. Must be "favor".
D. "Expenditure (sing) + produces" is right usage.

1 A . Subjunctive mood
2. D. a,B,C are out since subject verb agreement is not there. Discrimination +has not have, E has comparison error
3. I will go with D. A,B, E are out primafacie. Between C and D, D looks better worded "large sums of money"

I originally picked A on this one, but I can see why A, B, C, E are wrong as they share the same error.

the word and is incorrectly joining pension benefits and information to shareholders.

by using and rather than a comma, we are saying:

Corporations will soon be required to report to the government:
- whether they have the necessary reserves to pay the pension benefits earned by their employees AND
- whether that the information be published in annual reports to shareholders.

In actuality, it should be:
Corporations will soon be required to report to the government whether:
- they have the necessary reserves to pay the pension benefits earned by their employees

while at the same time, the information must also be published

A. paid in occupations that are predominantly male over the predominantly female have

B. paid in occupations that are predominantly make over those that are predominantly female have

C. that favors predominantly male occupations over the predominantly female have

D. that favors predominantly male occupations over those that are predominantly female has

E. paid in predominantly male occupations over the predominantly female has

can someone explain why the OA for question 2 is E? I chose D because I felt that the comparison in option E wasn't parallel. It compares "predominantly male occupations" to "predominantly female." So option E compares occupations to female??? I was able to narrow my answer choices to D and E because of the "has."

The reason I liked D better is that it compares "male occupations" to "those that are predominantly female." someone please explain. I'll really appreciate it.

thanks

OA for 1 question can't be D

the sentence uses "required" in first clause and the answer user "must" in its clause ; doesn't make sense to me
