The new government requires employers to inform an employee of their legal right to holidays and overtime pay.

The question tests the usage of "that" and SVA( their, his and have)

Meaning
The new government requires the employers of the company to inform X.
X: The employee of a company has a legal right to holidays and overtime pay

POE:
The entire sentence has one action. The SVA must agree with the corresponding noun

(A) employers to inform an employee of their
Employee: Singular but their is plural.
(B) employers to inform employees that he has a
that modifies the nearby noun employees which must be followed by a plural verb.
the pronoun he has no reference in this sentence.
(C) employers to inform employees that there is a
This option clarifies the above errors and the verb "is" refers to the legal right which is also singular
(D) that employers inform an employee of their
SVA error
(E) that employers inform the employees that they have a
Here the Subject verb agrees with each other. But the meaning and structure of the sentence are wrong.
According to this sentence, that is used twice, meaning, there are two actions
The new government requires
1. that X
2. that Y
But the actual meaning of the sentence has only one action to perform.

Hi Abhishek,
I had a hard time to choose between C and E. Finally I chose E. I dind not find they as a pronoun ambiguity. I know the subjunctive form is requires that X be Y. Another use of requires is Require someone to do something. Can u kindly help me on your analysis that how u ruled out option E?

IMHO, the pronoun They is ambiguous here as it can refer to either employers / employees....

Hi sumitgoyal2727

I reckon you have raised this question because you were looking for a command subjunctive construction for the bossy word "require". Is that correct? If that's the case, then "require" can take either the command subjunctive or the infinitive construction. For instance, each of the following two sentences is correct:

1. We require that they tell us the truth . - COMMAND SUBJUNCTIVE
2. We require them to tell us the truth. - INFINITIVE

Hope this helps!

Cheers!

Hi egmat
My doubt is regarding C and D .
1) If in E we have employees instead of they then will it be correct .
My doubt is between what follows "requires" in the original sentence .Is there any difference between requires " employers" and "requires that employers ".

Regards,
Arvind
