A is the right choice. It is testing the knowledge of Subjunctive mood. The sentence in A correctly describes the sentence in Subjunctive mood with "be <base form of verb>(accountable) ". Also accountable for is a correct idiom.

Just more explanation on subjunctive mood from my notes :


-----------
Most of the English verbs we use are in the indicative mood – that is, verbs that have happened, are happening, or will happen. The subjunctive mood is used to express wishes or possibilities that have not happened.

The most common subjunctive verb that you might encounter is were, the subjunctive form of was.

Example 1: If he were athletic, he could make the football team. (He is not actually athletic, so the verb communicates an idea that does not really exist).
Notice that “If he was athletic…” would be incorrect, even though you may not recognize such an error in speech or writing.
Example 2: The teacher requires that you be present on the final day of class.
The indicative conjugation would be “you are present,” but since “requires” triggers the subjunctive mood, we use be.
Example 3: She recommended that each student bring his or her homework every day.
The indicative conjugation would be “each student brings,” but since ‘recommended’ triggers the subjunctive, we use bring.
Notice that these verbs are often followed by subjunctive clauses:
Ask, demand, insist, order, prefer, recommend, request, require, suggest, wish
