(C) insist the best way to ensure freedom of religion for all citizens is the reduction of

(D) are insistent that the best way freedom of religion can be ensured for all citizens is the reduction of

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



Have insisted’ in B is the incorrect tense. It implies an action which has occurred up to the present time. However, the sentence as written implies that the civil libertarians still insist something. The sentence can be simplified to a choice among ‘the way is to reduce’, ‘the way is the reduction’ or ‘the way is reducing’. Only the first is correct. Eliminate C and D. A is more efficient than E. A is correct.
