The command subjunctive "mandate" requires "that" followed by a subjunctive verb. Eliminate B,C,E.
Between A and E the placement of "only" in A is incorrect .
Also the for the subjunctive mood "is to be.. " is incorrect. Hence eliminate A
Correct ans D.

Is the pronoun "it" ambiguous? "but it can be used only to shore up US .."

pronouns refer to the subject of the preceding clause and here the [revios clause is "that the funding is to be controlled by car companies"

and the subject is clearly "funding" so is there a pronoun reference error here? I can see that error pointed out in e-gmat but I am not sure.
Payal or anyone from @e-gmat team can help me out here?

Hi

I can't see the pronoun ambiguity here, it refers to the restriction document.
