is it E?

B, C and D are not correct so it's between A and E.

I think E's meaning is right here ... please post the OE as well.

I think we require that as a new subordinate clause needs to be introduced
hence A

I don't have OE and source.
OA is given as E.

Why not A?

Some even suggested C, because we need 'the' after requiring.

Between A and E, although I chose E, l'm also a bit confused. Correct idioms are "requiring X to Y" and "requiring that X Y". In the latter idiom X is a noun subject and Y a nonconjugated form of the verb (so was written on one of the English language forums) and the option A also follows this pattern, so A and E both seem correct
