    Re: In order to..., it is required that

    It should be 'well fitted for the job'

    'to be well fitted for a job' means that you meet the requirements.
    Why then say:
    "To meet the requirements, it is required..."? It is redundant.

    Hi joham


    The rule is that the subjects must agree. Note the ellipsis here:

    A. a good knowledge of physics is needed.
    B. one needs to have a good knowledge of physics
    C. it is required that one should have a good knowledge of physics
    D. a good knowledge of physics is important

    Re: In order to..., it is required that

    b is the correct answer. because the sentence begins with "in order to" must have a subject which is a person or a group of people. So b is the only suitable one
