Note that the king’s ordering is not followed by the connector 'that'; it is instead followed by the object. As per grammar, we can either order in a subjunctive way, using the base form of the verb or order in the normal way, using the idiom 'order x to do y', where x is the doer of the action and y is the infinitive verbal of the action ordered. Should prepare, would do the preparing, preparing and the preparing etc are ungrammatical

So E is the best

(E) to prepare lists of suspected criminals in their communities


All the options except for E are awkward, wordy, and have an incorrect verb/tense form. The correct grammatical construction has to be ordered panels of common citizens to prepare

Hence, I'll go with E

Straight E...its subjunctive mood. Needs to form of verb.
