why is D incorrect?
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.)

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.

SS1988,

Can you give some examples on your reasons?

I think that will be great.

Require needs subjunctive mode.(the verb to be in Base form)

the above explanation is good(if thats not sufficient please PM me,I can provide with some link for subjunctive mode.

IMO A. subjunctive mood always takes "that + infinitive form"..... without "to".

C here. Require can actually take on the command subjunctive or the infinitive as per MGMAT.

Quote:

Are both of these sentences correct? if I apply both rules?

1.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 a public disclosure of the purchase.
2. Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires that anyone who buys more than 5 percent of a company’s stock make a public disclosure of the purchase.

so the constructions are:
1.command verb THAT + be or verb without infinitive (is it bare infinitive?)
2.comman verb + to verb
