Why Discloses is required?

The first word of the sentence is released. Do you think it indicates a past action.

The report is released the first Friday of every month, indicating that the report always discloses the said information, and hence the present simple.

Thanks for the reason. It is exactly what I thought.

Even if you are not sure on discloses/disclosed, check other parts of the given choices. Either parallelism is missing on the number of or correctverbs.

OA is C.
Good job guys.

C is correct because releasing of report every first friday of the month is a continuous process.

Also in D

(D) disclosed the number of new jobs that are created during the reporting period and the number of hours being worked - 'are' is incorrect. 'the number of' is always singular.

(E) disclosed the number of new jobs that have been created during the reporting period and the number of hours worked
