OA is C.

This the command subjunctive structure that indicates desire.
suggest that X do Y
suggest that X NOT do Y.

C is correct. "suggested THAT traders pay..... and THAT they still not ignore......."

I think, C looks more correct than other choices. Correct sentence with option C becomes as below:

The analyst suggested that traders pay more attention to a broader measure of the money supply, known as M2, but that they still not ignore standard indicators.

In short,

The analyst suggested that traders pay more attention .., but that they still not ignore std. indicators.

In above line, I was expecting- they still do not ignore..

Is 'not + verb' correct usage?

It is C.

There is no problem with the tense. "that they still not ignore" is connected to "that traders pay" and it is a standard way of phrasing. Unfortunately, I don't know how it is called.

It is on the same lines as "I propose that you do this instead of that".

A. but still not to ignore
B. and not to ignore any longer
C. but that they still not ignore
D. and that they continue not to ignore
E. but they should still not ignore

One thing to remember is that all subjunctive mood sentences, whether the command subjunctive or past subjunctive will not be appealing to reason of normal usage but will be out of the ordinary, especially in the use of the verb form and tense.

The structure of the command subjunctive is

1. the use of a word that describes a mandatoriness such as desire or direct or even recommend or suggest in some special situations such as when they are from authorities or higher officials.
2. followed a by relative connector ‘that’ starts a subordinate clause and
3. a verb for the relative clause that is in the bare infinitive.

The word ‘suggested’ here denotes subjunction because it is from the analyst who is supposed to be the authority in the domain of finance. Then you have the connector ‘that’ duly followed by the bare infinitive verb ‘pay more attention but not ignore the old’. This is the structure of the classic command subjunctive.

As per these norms, one can confirm that only C sticks to the subjunctive pattern

(A) but still not to ignore
(B) and not to ignore any longer
(C) but that they still not ignore
(D) and that they continue not to ignore
(E) but they should still not ignore

that+subject+verb make them parallel here.Only C does that.

suggested "that traders pay more attention" BUT "that they still not ignore"

A) that is missing.
B) 'and' is wrong. we need 'contrast' word.
D) same as B
E) 'should' is wrong in subjunctive case. (The analyst suggested that traders pay) - 'should pay' and 'should ignore' would be wrong.

Rewrite the sentence as

The analyst suggested that traders pay more attention to XXX, but still not to ignore standard indicators =>

"suggested" is an example of mild subjunctive in which one person tells other to do something. The general usage is

[subjunctive] + that + base form of verb.

Hence "to ignore" (to + verb) is incorrect, we just need the verb(ignore). => A, B and D out.

GMAT uses "should" for "moral obligation". Also we need a "that" to maintain parallelism. Hence C is preferred over E.

C is correct.

(C) but that they still not ignore. Subjunctive mood too... Use of "Should" is definately wrong

Can you please explain what's wrong in (A)? and difference between A and C.

Thank you

Dear nahid78

I'm happy to respond.

The parallelism at the core of this sentence is
The analyst suggested X but not Y.

The X & Y have to be parallel. Since X is a "that" clause, Y must be a "that" clause as well.

Choice (C) has the correct parallelism.
Choice (A) has an infinitive in parallel with the initial "that" clause.

Does this make sense?
Mike

this is a really good question b/c the question combines many important grammar issues, including subjunctive mood, fanboys word with contrast expression, parallel and the verb tense.
