    Default I demanded that he apologized.

    1. I demanded that he should apologize.

    2. I demanded that he apologized.

    1 is of course grammatical and I wonder if 2 is grammatically correct and same in meaning with 1.


    If so,


    3. I suggested that she should go.

    4. I suggested that she went.


    Are 3 and 4 same in meaning too?
