My Choice is C too. The subjunctive mood requires the present form of the verb.

(B) companies to allow their retiring employees who would otherwise lose group health care coverage that they can continue
(C) that a company allow its retiring employees who would otherwise lose group health care coverage to continue

stuck between B and C

Go for B as there is no S/V in C (company allow), or after mandate that we should not use allows?
What is the OA pls?

The OA is "C"

M8, gmatacer,

This is case of "subjunctive mood". mandate, request, insist, demand etc indicate the subjunctive mood, you can read about it online, one of the favorites of GMAT.

I've no problems with C, but shouldn't allow be singular since company is a singular noun.

In subjunctive mood we need verb word. In general the above SC can be put like this...

X mandates that Y do Z
X mandates Y to do Z

'they' is ambiguous in B. It can refer to 'companies' or to 'employees'

Vivek, can you please explain C?
How can 'a company' use 'allow' instead of 'allows'?

Then why not E?

No need to answer to this. 'A retiring employee' v/s 'their own expense' contradiction.

shailu,
That's the key to understand in subjunctive mood.

For example:

If I were you. ---> Is correct.
I wish I were lighter on my feet ----> Is correct
We use "were" here & not "was"

As I said, X mandates that Y do Z, it is not, X mandates that Y does Z

Here is another example,
He recommended that each driver reports his tips. ---> Incorrect
He recommended that each driver report his tips. ---> Correct
