Straight B...'not only X but also Y' is the correct idiom and this choice uses the subjunctive mood correctly :require that not share...and not buy.

I am going with D the idiom is require that X be Y

I think in D the placement of "but also that" makes it ||...A got this piece wrong..

Going with B just for the sake of not share ..not buy

I like B better than D.
B for me.
Uses the subjunctive mood and the idiom "not only..but also" correctly.

I will pick B becasue subjuntive mood require base form of the verb so any choice using "Can/Are" is wrong.
That leaves only B and second confirmation that this choice is indeed ......is correct used of idiom not only that......but also that...........

The verb forms in D (share , allowed) do not match and they have to be parallel in "not only..but also..
B it is for me.. :)

This one is clearly B for parallelism.
D is not parallel...not only X, but also Y
B maintains "that" for both X and Y, but D doesn't.

sorry about that guys! I have been so busy and lost track of the threads I created! :oops:

The OA is B and the source is from the MGMAT question bank.

I posted this question because I was uncertain of the difference between B and D. Obviously I know the idiom "not only.. but also" oh too well but was unsure of the word placement and how it changes the meaning of the sentence. Thanks guys! :thanks
