its section of an act - its a MUST!


Either a command subjunctive (with "that") or an infinitive is to be used in such cases.

The law requires that I pay 20% tax (correct).
The law requires me to pay 20% tax (correct).... analogical to option C.

The following structure is analogical to option D:
The law requires I must pay 20% tax (wrong). (2 errors - "that" missing, in hypothetical subjunctive "must" is not to be used.)

require :

either take : that + command subjunctive
or take : to + bare form of verb

as no that will take infinitive:

IMO C

OA Please !!

c) to make

in this sense: the act requires a person...to make a public disclosure.

'make' is incorrect with 'anyone'

only (C) makes sense.

There are two ways of writing this one. The first is the use of the command subjunctive form. In the command subjunctive, you have to have a mandatory element (such as requires here) and a connector ‘that’ and finally a basic or command form of the verb (make here)

The construction of such a sentence here will be
Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires (mandatory element) that (the connector word) anyone who buys more than 5 percent of a company's stock make (the command verb) a public disclosure of the purchase

The other way of writing this is straight and simple. In the second case, you have to use an infinitive verbal and be done with.

For example, when the above sentence is re- written with the infinitive --- Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires anyone who buys more than 5 percent of a company's stock ‘to make’ (the use of infinitive verbal) public disclosure of the purchase. But don’t skip the ‘to’ for any reason at least the first time

In the given example, Chocie C is correct.

Simple, the answer is (C) to make

If you check the part of the sentence:

"REQUIRES any ONE .... TO make a public"

Can someone please explain why A is incorrect, even though the verb is in its base form?
