Requires can go with either "to" or "require that + command subjunctive". Here, no option shows "to". So, it has to use the command subjunctive, which means that the following phrase must be a command such as "children, churn butter now!" Note that "churn" is used in its core, raw verb form without any ornaments. The only option that satisfies this correctly is (E). The others are non-sensical.

D inserts "are to" in between children and churn, that is unnecessary. Plus it changes "chore" to "requirement" which to my mind is a different meaning.

the trick here is that require can take both "to" and "that" in subjunctive mood.
we see that all options are with "that". this means only one thing - the verb that comes next must be in subjunctive form. only E correctly uses SM.
