Expert's post
(A) that a bank disclose to their customers how long they will delay access to funds from deposited checks --- a bank –their – subject pronoun number disagreement
(B) a bank to disclose to their customers how long they will delay access to funds from a deposited check ------ same as A
(C) that a bank disclose to its customers how long it will delay access to funds from deposited checks --- right use of present subjunctive mood template ' X requires that Y do ' and Pronoun agreement --- disclose is the imperative base form of the subjunctive verb --- correct choice.
(D) a bank that it should disclose to its customers how long it will delay access to funds from a deposited check –---- right idiom is x requires Y to do . ‘X requires that Y should’ is wrong use of subjunctive mood verb as well as idiomatic format
(E) that banks disclose to customers how long access to funds from their deposited check is to be delayed --- Here the problem is more logical than structural. Certainly, it does not have to do with 'their' but with the singular check. Do the customers all present their own individual checks or do they present a single joint check? Doesn’t meet logic, does it?

C: We know that "it" refers to the bank, because the sentence says "its customers", which implicity means bank and not "bill". So, using "its" later on is not ambiguous, we already know that "it" refers to bank and not bill.

E) "to customers" is ambiguous because we do not know WHOSE customers we're talking about. A/B out because bank needs singular and they include "their", D out because "bill requires a bank that it SHOULD".. It requires that banks should? Makes no sense.

"C". In E- "their" creates ambiguity.

I picked (C) but I do not know what is gramatically wrong in E. Can someone shed some light on why (E) is incorrect?

The problem with E is the usage of "their". It distorts the meaning of the sentence.

I guess its C.

As per my understanding in option E 'Their' may point to either customers or Banks.

C is the answer. Option E is wrong because the meaning is not logical "all the customers don't have a joint check"

E is wrong because of use of passive voice.

point to note in option D, 'requires a bank that it should' - here should indicates a moral obligation while requires indicates that it is mandatory. These contradict each other.

C is the correct incorporating correct structure with bossy verb "requires"

Bank (singular) + Disclose (Plural) .. isn't there a problem with this usage ?

In subjunctive statements, we are required to use:
a. simple present tense form (for example: 'disclose')
b. always singular irrespective of the subject.
c. No "should" is to be added.

Just to explain subjunctive means demand or command verb like 'requires', 'ordered'. Here is the format:

Demanding verb (such as requires, ordered, etc) + THAT + ROOT form verb or BE (simple tense form such as 'disclose' above)

Some other examples from web are:

The Supreme Court decreed that he TAKE charge of the situation
I insist that the chairman resign!
I suggest that he study
The attorney proposed that the session be adjourned until the following day


Hope it helps

Cheers
