C.

(A) that a bank disclose to their customers how long they will delay access to funds from deposited checks
a bank is singular so "their" cannot be used.

(B) a bank to disclose to their customers how long they will delay access to funds from a deposited check
a bank is singular so "their" cannot be used.

(D) a bank that it should disclose to its customers how long it will delay access to funds from a deposited check
"requires that" is needed here, also "it should" is not grammatically correct

(E) that banks disclose to customers how long access to funds from their deposited check is to be delayed
"their" has no clear referrent

I think the idiom is require X to do Y...

based on this I would go with B...

memorize these idioms...

OA is C, but I fell into trap and answered B (later I saw that we can't use "their" here).

Could somebody please explain me the difference between requires to and requires that?

Before this example I always thought, that:
require to - idiomatic
Require that X + infinitive stem - idiomatic.

A,B -> 'they' improperly refers to customers
E -> 'their' improerly points to funds

C it is.

requires that is correct usage

C is the correct ans

C

I believe Requires X to do Y and Requires that X do Y are both correct.

B is incorrect because of 'they'.

I am sure C is the correct answer. But I am just wondering if it should be "a bank discloses" instead of "a bank disclose", bank being singular.

Anyone can throw light on this?

C

B is wrong as it uses 'their' for bank
D and E are confusing

This is the use of subjunctive form
Require + That + base form of the verb

So here the bank disclose(not discloses) is the base form of the verb.

The same holds for ur other query also.

Hey Vineet and Wudy,

Further query from me :-)

- I suggest that he resign from the company.
- I suggest that he resigns from the company.

Is this example on the same line? which one is correct?

Rakesh,
Sentences which express hopes, desires , requests and proposals (are subjunctive and have the following format:
that+infinitive form of the verb(without the word "to")

Infinitive verb = to+verb

Sorry that's not quite clear to me. Should it be "resign" or "resigns"?
