(A) be complete and follow a prescribed format
(B) is complete and it follows a prescribed format
(C) be complete and a prescribed format is followed
(D) to be complete and a prescribed format be followed
(E) be completed, and it followed a prescribed format

IMO A . Command Subjunctive , so requires the verb in Bare Form i.e. "complete" & "follow " , which are also abiding the parallelism rule .

i saw that parallelism as an issue...but picked B which is incorrect. Command subjunctive will lead you to A.

Main sentence structure is Subject + require + Object : that is "Command Subjunctive" sentence structure. Command subjunctive Present participle "to be" form is "be" hence "be complete" instead of "is complete" and any third person subject verb turns in to the first person present tense verb (aka drop -s and -es).

A it is.

answer should of the format be....and follow......

so A and E are the ones to be considered... E is ignored because there is a pronoun IT is ambiguous... so A is the answer

Is "financial information" used as a plural noun here? since option A uses "follow".

Hi,

Just need some clarity. I chose B because I assumed "financial information" was singular and "financial information follow a prescribed format" sounds wrong to me. I understand the whole "be complete" vs "is complete" reasoning but should a better answer read "Bankers require that the financial information presented to them by mortgage applicants be complete and FOLLOWS a prescribed format." ?

Is this practice question a case of choosing the best answer or is there a legitimate reason for follow vs follows? Any insight would be much appreciated

(B) is complete and it follows a prescribed format
(C) be complete and a prescribed format is followed
(D) to be complete and a prescribed format be followed
(E) be completed, and it followed a prescribed format

It's the case of command subjunctive.

Bossy verb + that + subject + command subjunctive form of verb.

A wins.
