"Wouldn't it be more correct for (C) to be like this "but that they still did not ignore"[/b]"

C is right, your example creates problems with tenses making it incorrect

I agree with Praveen. This should be like that only as Praveen has told. Because first part of the sentence is in Past (Suggested). So other part of the sentence should follow the same tense.

What tense prolem with "did"? Since it is simple past too.
Also, I have never seen a sentence that has "not" without "does/do" or "did"...

A. 'still not to' is awkward
B. 'not to ignore any longer (standard indicators)' -> sentence changed
C. but that they still not ignore
D. awkward sentence
E. but they should still not ignore

I'll take C. E just doesnt' sound right to me.

IMO, this SC tests subjuntive mood.
So C is correct with " that S+ V( bare infinitive)"

C

a) but still not to ignore
quite close
b) and not to ignore any longer
Meaning changes - any longer standard indicators.
d) and not that they continue to ignore
meaning changes
e) but that they are still not ignoring
not parallel

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 for 2 reasons:

1: Subjunctive - x suggested y to do z.
2: llism - that x ........ but that y..........

I would go with C... "that traders" parallel to "but that they". Any Kaplan expert to share the OA?
