a. exceeds their new requirements for dioxin level and that they allow
b. exceed its new requirements for dioxin level and that they allow
c. exceeds its new requirements for dioxin level and that it allows
d. exceed its new requirements for dioxin level and that it allows
e. exceed their new requirements for dioxin level and that they allow

I think this one is debatable. Try it.



I think in the question it should be cod and mackerel are the only fishes then only the answer is C
because fish is singular so exceed can only be used if it is fishes

b. exceed its new requirements for dioxin level and that they allow
c. exceeds its new requirements for dioxin level and that it allows
d. exceed its new requirements for dioxin level and that it allows
e. exceed their new requirements for dioxin level and that they allow

-European Union is singular so eliminate A and C based on verb exceed


b. exceed its new requirements for dioxin level and that they allow
d. exceed its new requirements for dioxin level and that it allows
e. exceed their new requirements for dioxin level and that they allow

The 'they' in b and e incorrectly refer to the European Union so D

or it should be
