My understanding is that "rather than " is used for comparing clauses or verb,however here noun "together " is used.Please clarify

"Together" is an adverb, not a noun.

Nonetheless "rather than" can be used to join even nouns. "Rather than" is more general than "instead of" and can be used to join phrases, clauses, nouns, verbs or adverbs, whereas "instead of" can only join nouns or noun phrases.

C is not wrong gramatically, but it could be more concise. Repeating "to interview them" makes this option wordy.

Standard police procedure requires that an officer interview witnesses separately rather than together.

(A) Standard police procedure requires that an officer interview witnesses separately rather than together
(B) A requirement, according to standard police procedure, is that an officer interview witness separately rather than interviewing them together
(C_new) Standard police procedure requires an officer to interview witnesses separately rather than together
(D) It is required in standard police procedure that an officer interviews witnesses separately, not together
(E) Standard police procedure requires that an officer interviews witnesses separately rather than together
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

So what the priority between "Require that Verb (without to)" and "Require to + Verb"?
Which option to cjoose in this case - A or C_new?
