It is a perfect example of how subjunctive mood can be used.

With the trigger words such as demand, recommend, request, insist, dictate, mandate, stipulate, suggest etc., subjunctive mood is used. In subjunctive mood, the format is generally trigger word + that + subject + subjunctive verb.

Hence (A) is the only option which uses it perfectly and it should be the correct answer. However, I have one doubt about what it is referring to.

The National Security Agency insists that in order to disrupt any terrorist activities, it regularly scan most if not all overseas cables and telephone traffic and a large volume of written domestic communications.

The national security agency is insisting (to someone), hence The national security agency cannot refer to it. Can someone please clarify?
