When we are using word ordered, the verb usage must be to+ verb.
Also, 'their' which is a plural pronoun has a plural antecedent "local officials"

Option E is the correct answer.

Step 1: "To control…ordered…should censor" is the wrong sequence of verb tenses. We need a verb that communicates future action. Also, "to" normally follows "order".

Step 2: Eliminate (B), (C), and (D). Correct choice (E) uses the phrase "ordered to censor".

KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



E

Read the sentence carefully, but don't get preoccupied with correcting it. Get right to the choices. Your ear will tell you that "...ordered local officials to censor records" (E) is correct.
