A note before attacking the question:
- "PROPOSE THAT X BE Y" - (subjunctive) - is correct idiom.

The commission proposed that funding for the park's development, which could be open to the public early next year. is obtained through a local bond issue.
(A) that funding for the park's development, which could be open to the public early next year, is
Wrong. Misplaced modifier problem: "which" refers to the development.

(B) that funding for development of the park, which could be open to the public early next year, be
Correct. Propose THAT x BE y ==> correct idiom.

(C) funding for the development of the park, perhaps open to the public early next year, to be
Wrong. Propose X to be Y --> wrong idiom.

(D) funds for the park's development, perhaps open to the public early next year, be
Wrong. Misplaced modifier problem. "the development" can't open to the public.

(E) development funding for the park, which could be open to the public early next year, is to be
Wrong. Propose x is to be y --> wrong idiom.

Hope it helps.

SPLIT1) THE WORD "WHICH" AFTER THE COMMA (,) MODIFIES THE WORD RIGHT BEFORE THE COMMA "PARK". A IS OUT.

SPLIT2) "PROPOSED X TO BE Y" IS THE WRONG IDIOM. C IS OUT. D) THE WORD "PERHAPS" AFTER THE COMMA (,) MODIFIES THE WORD RIGHT BEFORE THE COMMA "DEVELOPMENT", THIS IS A WRONG USE OF THE WORD "PERHAPS" BECAUSE THE DEVELOPMENT CANNOT BE OPENED TO THE PUBLIC, IT CHANGES THE MEANING, AND IS WRONG. D IS OUT.

SPLIT3) "PROPOSE X IS TO BE Y" IS THE WRONG IDIOM. E IS OUT.

The commission proposed that funding for the park's development, which could be open to the public early next year. is obtained through a local bond issue.
(A) that funding for the park's development, which could be open to the public early next year, is - which incorrectly refers to noun development ; proposed needs subjunctive verb
(B) that funding for development of the park, which could be open to the public early next year, be - Correct
(C) funding for the development of the park, perhaps open to the public early next year, to be - that is missing - the object of proposed that is needed to introduce the clause describing the proposal
(D) funds for the park's development, perhaps open to the public early next year, be - that is missing , modifier error 'perhaps .. next year'
(E) development funding for the park, which could be open to the public early next year, is to be - that is missing ; proposed needs subjunctive verb

Answer B

This Question tests on Subjunctive case concept.
Proposed should be followed by that and ONLY a BE is allowed instead of any other form(is , are ,were , am etc.).
Hence B is right answer .

The use of word "Proposed" indicates that the above sentence is in subjunctive mood

and the format to write subjunctive mood is
Subject+ ( bossy verb)+(predicate) + that + subject + verb in the base form + object
bossy verb: Demand/ Dictate/ Recommend/ Request/ Insist/ Mandate/ Propose
Verb in the base form means: use be for is/am/are/ was/were/ have/ has/had and for any other verb
use base form of verb whether subject is singular or plural.

A) Incorrectthat funding for the park's development, which could be open to the public early next year, is
The highlighted modifier wrongly modifies developement. this modifier is supposed to modify park.
The use of "is" is also incorrect
(B) [color=#fff200]Correct[/color]that funding for development of the park, which could be open to the public early next year, be
modifer correctly modifies park and be is correctly used
(C) funding for the development of the park, perhaps open to the public early next year, to be
no verb and that is missing
(D) funds for the park's development, perhaps open to the public early next year, be
mandatory that is missing
(E) development funding for the park, which could be open to the public early next year, is to be
IS is wrong verb to express the subjunctive mood

B is Correct - In this sentence, which clearly modifies park; the subjunctive be correctly follows proposed that.

Hi Blackishmamba

It would still be incorrect as 'that' would be missing in the sentence. We need 'proposed that'to convey the intended meaning, 'proposed funding' changes the intended meaning.
