SajjadAhmad, Please underline the portion instead of coloring the text. :)
Glad: you mentioned the source. :)

Regulations explain the rule regarding any one company so pronoun must be it rather than their. A, D and E are eliminated.
plural verb is must for subjunctive clause.
Thus C is the answer.

Hi Moderators,

an any one pleasse tell what is subjunctive verb error ?

To be precise why B is wrong. According to me here the subject is "A public company" which is singular hence it should take singular verb ?

Dear akash.tripathi,

I believe you should learn the basics of Subjunctive mood. Here is a link that may help you learn this subjunctive verb:

https://gmatclub.com/forum/subjunctive- ... ml#p600516

Since we have 'require' that which is subjunctive in nature, you MUST use Verb in Plural form irrespective of subject used.

After require that, the verb we use needs to be in the simplest form, irrespective of the subject.

We require that he make the presentation.

The company requires that she chair the meeting.

He requires that they take part in the celebration.

They require that we be present.

SEC regulations require that a public company disclose to their potential investors any legal, technological, or financial complications that could endanger their investments.

A. a public company disclose to their (a public company is singular. Therefore, usage of 'their' is incorrect)
B. a public company discloses to its (We need simple form of verb after subjunctive verb)
C. a public company disclose to its (Correct)
D. public companies disclose to its (companies are plural. Therefore, usage of its is wrong)
E. public companies have disclosed to their (Same as B)

Kudos please if you like my explanation.

Dear akash.tripathi,

I'm happy to respond. :-)

My friend, I am going to recommend this blog:
GMAT Grammar: The Subjunctive Mood

A great deal is explained in that blog. I just give a few highlight here. Verbs in English have four basic qualities
a) tense
b) voice (active/passive)
c) number (singular/plural)
d) mood (indicative/imperative/subjunctive)


Over 95% of the sentences on the GMAT SC are in the indicative mood, the ordinary statement-of-fact mode of speaking. The imperative mood is about commands (e.g. "Stand up!" "Eat your vegetables", etc.) By convention, this does not appear at all in the GMAT SC sentences, although the directions of every part of the test can contain verbs in the imperative.

The subjunctive mood is used for hypothetical situation, contrary-to-fact situations, and inside "that" clauses for certain verbs. More details at that blog above.

In the subjective, the infinitive form is always used. You see, the ordinary rules for singular & plural that you know only work in the indicative mood. The subjunctive mood is completely different.

Let me know if you have questions about what I wrote in that blog.

Mike :-)

Do you really want to call everybody you know for a problem?

I think Mike has posted the perfect solution.
