Since 1986, when the Department of Labor began to allow investment officer's fees to be based on how the funds they manage perform, several coporations began paying their investment advisers a small basic fee, with a contract promising highrer fees if the managers perform well.

a) investment officer's fees to be based on how the funds they manage perform, several corporations began

b) investment officer's fees to be based on the performance of thefunds they manage, several corporations began

c) that fees of investment officers be based on how the funds they manage perform, several corporations have begun

d) fees of investment officers to be based on the performance og the funds they manage, several corporations have begun

e) that investment officer's fees be based on the performance of the funds they manage, several corporations began

OA is d

I dont's understand OG explanation.
It says that investment officers' is a possessive modifying fees, and the flural noun fees intervenes between officers'.
-> that's why a, b, e are out!
does plural pronoun such as they always refer to the word right before the pronoun if there are two plural words before the pronoun ? Please~~ somebody explains for me!!

A possessive noun cannot be a subject, like officer's here. so the noun here is the fees.

sentence has 'Since 1986', so we must use 'have + past participle'. -- general rule

Since the fee of the officer is more imp. here, its best to use passive form for Officer.

with all this reason D is the best.

Request you to not to post answeres/queries/views in question window. This prevents us to analyze the question. The whole purpose of GMAT Club forums is wasted doing so.

can anyone help out with the POE for option C...?
Is it not suited since "allow" does not call for subjunctive mood?

My 2 cents on this question:

a) investment officer's fees to be based on how the funds they manage perform, several corporations began -- no antecedent for they

b) investment officer's fees to be based on the performance of thefunds they manage, several corporations began -- same as a

c) that fees of investment officers be based on how the funds they manage perform, several corporations have begun -- same as a -

d) fees of investment officers to be based on the performance og the funds they manage, several corporations have begun -- correctly refer they to investment officers, have begun seem to be correct

e) that investment officer's fees be based on the performance of the funds they manage, several corporations began -- same as a
