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

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

The bold part states that an action happens every month so we need present simple tense. Hence D and E are our. Among A,B,C C wins since new jobs are countable nouns and hence "the amount of " is incorrect!

The first Friday of every month occurs ; repeated action hence presnt tense will follow.

The amount = Used for Non countable Nouns
The number = Used for Countable Nouns


Number of Jobs created dring a particular period of time is countable so - The number is acceptable.
Hours worked can be counted so - The Number of Hours worked is acceptable.

(A) discloses the amount of new jobs to be created during the reporting period and the amount of hours to be worked - Incorrect

(B) discloses the amount of new jobs being created during the reporting period and the amount of hours worked - Incorrect

(C) discloses the number of new jobs created during the reporting period and the number of hours worked - Correct

(D) disclosed the number of new jobs that are created during the reporting period and the number of hours being worked - Incorrect

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

Hence IMHO (C) is correct !!

for countable things one need to use "number" not amount so A and B are out
D using "number of hours being worked" being is used for on-going action so its use is wrong here..D out moreover, D isnt precise. one can say number of new jobs created rather number of jobs that are created
the use of have been is wrong in option E
