Hi guys, this isn’t exactly a verbal question nor is it directly related to the GMAT, but a friend asked me this and I was just curious…

Which of the below two sentences is correct and why? Please give detailed explanations if possible.

(1) I required that he help me with my chores.

(2) I required that he helps me with my chores.

Thanks and I really appreciate any and all responses.

require that X (be) Y - it is subjunctive mood.
Therefore, first option is correct

other idiom: mandate that + subj.mood
