The board recommended that additional funding for the completion of the town pool, which could be open as early as next year, should be obtained through private donations not through tax revenue.

A) that additional funding for the completion of the town pool, which could be open as early as next year, should be obtained through private donations not through tax revenue.
Wrong. "recommend" + "should" ==> redundant.

B) that additional funding for the town pool’s completion, which could be open as early as next year, be obtained through private donations not through tax revenue.
Wrong. Modifier error.

C) that additional funding for the completion of the town pool, perhaps open as early as next year, be obtained through private donations not through tax revenue.
Wrong. Grammar error. --> should be "opened", not "open"

D) that additional funding for the completion of the town pool, which could be open as early as next year, be obtained through private donations not tax revenue.
Correct. Subjunctive mood. Note: the second preposition "through" [through tax revenue] can be omitted.

E) that additional funding for the completion of the town pool, which could be open as early as next year, is obtained through private donations not through tax revenue.
Wrong. Subjunctive --> must use bare verb "be", not "is".

Hope it helps.

Thanks pqhai,

I actually eliminated Option D) on the basis of missing through in "obtained through private donations not tax revenue" and selected B) . I didn't notice Option B has other modifier errors.

I guess Mock stress. Got to take care of the stress.

I am not sure about the open or opened. pqhai can explain more.

I eliminated the Option C) on the basis of
C) that additional funding for the completion of the town pool, perhaps open as early as next year, be obtained through private donations not through tax revenue.
It is not clear what is modified by the sentence fragment ",perhaps open as early as next year,"
In the correct answer the relative pronoun (which) explains clearly that town pool could be open as early as next year.

could someone elaborate on why C is wrong?

Also, does "through private donations not THROUGH tax revenue" -> does the extra 'through' in C relative to D matter?

subjunctive mood always requires Be verb A and E instant elimination
B and C distorts the meaning of the sentence

Is it true subjunctive requires be to follow? I thought bossy verbs required 'be', but that subjunctive could follow with is/are depending on the context

I really like the phrase "bossy verbs", mdacosta.

BB wrote a good summary of subjunctive in this thread: https://gmatclub.com/forum/subjunctive- ... 79606.html. If that doesn't answer your question, let me know, and I'll say more about it.
