Here the subject 'financial information' is singular right? If so, it should use 'follows' than 'follow', isn't it?

"require that" implies subjunctive mood. So "follow" is correct.
A should be the correct answer.

I think C should be the one.

"bankers" is the subject while "financial information" is the object.

KUDOS
REQUIRE is a special verb that can take either a Command Subjunctiive(THAT + Subject + Verb form) or an infinitive.

In the statement, Bankers REQUIRE THAT , it is following a pattern of command subjunctive verb mood.

A - My choice.
B - is complete. For command subjunctive ONLY "BE" is allowed, No other Be form such as is, was, were is allowed. Out of the game.
C. be complete and a prescribed format is followed. Here AND is a parallel marker, and the phrases before and after AND are expected to be parallel. A presribed format is not parallel to BE COMPLETE. Out of the game.
D. to be complete - to is not the correct usage. There should not be TO for command subjunctive. Out of the game.
E. be completed. Always the verb should be bare form of the verb(complete) but not completed. Hence out of the game.

Does it mean that the verb "follow" does not depend on the noun (information - singular) in this case?

Hi
Incase of Subjunctive usage...verb must be plural, even if the subject is singular.
Another point to note is that require can be both Subjunctive and non subjunctive...but since that is used after require so it confirms its subjunctive role.

Consider Kudos if my post helps!!

By removing extraneous parts, the original sentence becomes:

Bankers require that the financial information be complete and follow a prescribed format.

A) Grammatically correct and maintains parallelism. "require that" needs subjunctive mood -- "be complete" and "follow" are in subjunctive mood. Correct.
B) "is complete" is incorrect. "is complete" and "it follows" are not parallel.
C) Both active and passive voice are present. "be complete" and "prescribed format is followed" are not parallel.
D) "to be complete" and "prescribed format be following" are not parallel. "prescribed format be following" is grammatically incorrect.
E) "it" does not have a clear referent. "require that" needs the subjunctive mood -- "be completed" and "followed" are inappropriate.

Note:
Subjunctive forms of verbs are used to express various states that has not yet occurred -- these states can be wish, emotion, possibility, judgment, opinion, necessity, action, etc.
Present perfect forms, e.g., 'follows', are real and this form is not used to depict something that didn't happen yet.
Here we need subjunctive mood so as to fulfill the requirements of the bankers; so, the forms "be complete" and "follow" are correct.

IMO A

Command subjective must be a base form of to be vierb - only be no is/are/to be/was/were..

However, the OA - A seems to be worded wrongly since follow should be singular.. follows.

Any comments....
