the state - singular subject so singular verb is required. adopts is right.

(A) that the state adopt several common-sense reforms, most of which have already shown--S-V error

(B) the state adopting several common-sense reforms, which had mostly already shown-- no verb for subject [color=#ed1c24]state[/color]

(C) that the state adopts several common-sense reforms, most of which had already been showing-->incorrect tense

(D) that the state adopts several common-sense reforms, most of which have already shown- no error

(E) that the state adopts several common-sense reforms, which had mostly already shown-->meaning error because of which

Hi GMAT215,

Subjunctive verbs: insist, require, recommend, suggest, etc - these verbs demands or suggest.

Subjunctive verb + that --> the verb that follows this combination has to be used in its base form.

Example:
I recommend that she take the exam.

Verb - to take (infinitive form)
base form - take

following are wrong:

I recommend that she takes the exam.
I recommend that she should take the exam.


this is why D is wrong.

Correct answer is A.
Here presence of ' Recommends that' indicate subjunctive mood i.e. one person wants the other person to do something.
It always follows the structure: Subject+Verb+That+Subject+verb in base form(plural).
Following the above structure 'Adopt' is the correct plural verb.
