The answer is A - correct as is. Two possible explanations that I can think of:

(1) Idiom: "require X be Y" OR
(2) MGMAT SC Strategy Guide's definition: command subjective is used with "bossy verbs" (require in this example) require the verb form "to be" to follow after the verb.

Here's an example: The President requests that you be present at the meeting.

Another item to look for in this question is parallelism: "complete" and "follow" should be parallel. Before the second verb (follow), "be" is understood, so it doesn't need to be explicitly stated.

'be' is used here as a verb in active voice. e.g. It is necesary that I be myself.
'follow' is also in active voice.
So A has parallel use of verb

(E) be completed, and it followed a prescribed format



IMO A . Command Subjunctive , so requires the verb in Bare Form i.e. "complete" & "follow " , which are also abiding the parallelism rule .

i saw that parallelism as an issue...but picked B which is incorrect. Command subjunctive will lead you to A.

Main sentence structure is Subject + require + Object : that is "Command Subjunctive" sentence structure. Command subjunctive Present participle "to be" form is "be" hence "be complete" instead of "is complete" and any third person subject verb turns in to the first person present tense verb (aka drop -s and -es).

A it is.

answer should of the format be....and follow......

so A and E are the ones to be considered... E is ignored because there is a pronoun IT is ambiguous... so A is the answer

Is "financial information" used as a plural noun here? since option A uses "follow".

Here the subject 'financial information' is singular right? If so, it should use 'follows' than 'follow', isn't it?


"require that" implies subjunctive mood. So "follow" is correct.
A should be the correct answer.


Does it mean that the verb "follow" does not depend on the noun (information - singular) in this case?

Hi
Incase of Subjunctive usage...verb must be plural, even if the subject is singular.
Another point to note is that require can be both Subjunctive and non subjunctive...but since that is used after require so it confirms its subjunctive role.

Consider Kudos if my post helps!!

(A) be complete and follow a prescribed format
(B) is complete and it follows a prescribed format
(C) be complete and a prescribed format is followed
(D) to be complete and a prescribed format be following
(E) be completed, and it followed a prescribed format

please explain.

Here the subject 'financial information' is singular right? If so, it should use 'follows' than 'follow', isn't it?


By removing extraneous parts, the original sentence becomes:

Bankers require that the financial information be complete and follow a prescribed format.

A) Grammatically correct and maintains parallelism. "require that" needs subjunctive mood -- "be complete" and "follow" are in subjunctive mood. Correct.
B) "is complete" is incorrect. "is complete" and "it follows" are not parallel.
C) Both active and passive voice are present. "be complete" and "prescribed format is followed" are not parallel.
D) "to be complete" and "prescribed format be following" are not parallel. "prescribed format be following" is grammatically incorrect.
E) "it" does not have a clear referent. "require that" needs the subjunctive mood -- "be completed" and "followed" are inappropriate.

Note:
Subjunctive forms of verbs are used to express various states that has not yet occurred -- these states can be wish, emotion, possibility, judgment, opinion, necessity, action, etc.
Present perfect forms, e.g., 'follows', are real and this form is not used to depict something that didn't happen yet.
Here we need subjunctive mood so as to fulfill the requirements of the bankers; so, the forms "be complete" and "follow" are correct.
