The health commissioner said that the government had implemented strict measures to eradicate the contaminated food and, despite the recent illnesses, it will try to prevent the outbreak from recurring in the future.

A) it will try
B) that it tried
D) it would try
E) that it would try

I am trying a different approach. Let's convert it into a direct speech:
The health commissioner said, "the government implemented strict measures to eradicate the contaminated food and, despite the recent illnesses, will try to prevent the outbreak from recurring in the future."

If we convert this into a indirect speech, it seems easier to reject A. B and C, bcos would is required. Now 'that' as in E is necessary bcos both the statements are said by the commissioner, not just the first one.

Tricky question. Good for building concept.

Thanks.
