(B) you should request a guarantee for your merchandise

(D) a guarantee for one’s merchandise is what should be requested

(E) a guarantee for your merchandise is what should be requested


IMO B.
The non-underline portion uses pronoun 'you and your' so options A, C and D are out.
Out of B and E, B is more concise and hence should be the correct answer.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



This question involves parallel structure. Once you pick a pronoun form, you must use it consistently throughout the sentence. Because the sentence says ‘your new purchase’, you and its derivatives are the correct pronouns. That leaves us with choices B and E. Choices E is passive. Choice B is the correct answer.
