158. Bankers require that the financial information presented to them by mortgage applicants be complete and follow a prescribed format.
(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?


Idiom: require that X do Y.

(A) be complete and follow a prescribed format
Correct. require that the financial information presented ........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

IMO A

Command subjective must be a base form of to be vierb - only be no is/are/to be/was/were..

However, the OA - A seems to be worded wrongly since follow should be singular.. follows.

Any comments....

Hi,

Just need some clarity. I chose B because I assumed "financial information" was singular and "financial information follow a prescribed format" sounds wrong to me. I understand the whole "be complete" vs "is complete" reasoning but should a better answer read "Bankers require that the financial information presented to them by mortgage applicants be complete and FOLLOWS a prescribed format." ?

Is this practice question a case of choosing the best answer or is there a legitimate reason for follow vs follows? Any insight would be much appreciated :)

It's the case of command subjunctive.

Bossy verb + that + subject + command subjunctive form of verb.

A wins.

The subjunctive mode has a verb always in its plural form:
REQUIRE THAT + X+ VERB (infinitive w/o to)--- require that he do the homework.

Correct me if i am wrong.

You are almost correct. However the command subjunctive mood is not a plural form, but a form you would use to command someone. This form is used with certain bossy verbs such as demand / require / propose etc.

Be fit, Anonimo!
I demand that you be fit.

Here be is not the plural form, but the form you would use to order someone. Notice that the command subjunctive mood is used with the bossy verb demand.

However you are right to say infinitive without to.

I presume you are already aware that there is another type of subjunctive mood called hypothetical subjunctive.

And what would this hypothetical subjunctive be?

Most probably you have come across this usage but may not be familiar with the name subjunctive. Following is a brief description of the same:

Please consider the following two cases of conditional sentences - the first case uses hypothetical subjunctive mood:

Case I: Unlikely Case (in the future)
If I went to the party, I would get very bored.
Structure: IF [hypothetical subjunctive (went)], THEN [conditional tense (would get)].
Here, the sentence implies that I am unlikely to go to the party. The Conditional tense depicts the hypothetical result (would get bored) of the unlikely condition.

Hypothetical subjunctive takes the simple past form (in this case went). Please remember the exception, we use were instead of was in hypothetical subjunctive. Example: If I were the king, I would eradicate poverty.

Case II: Case That Never Happened (in the past)
If I had gone to the party, I would have got very bored.
Structure: IF [past perfect (had gone)], THEN [conditional perfect (would have got)]

REQUIRE is a special verb that can take either a Command Subjunctiive(THAT + Subject + Verb form) or an infinitive.

In the statement, Bankers REQUIRE THAT , it is following a pattern of command subjunctive verb mood.

A - My choice.
B - is complete. For command subjunctive ONLY "BE" is allowed, No other Be form such as is, was, were is allowed. Out of the game.
C. be complete and a prescribed format is followed. Here AND is a parallel marker, and the phrases before and after AND are expected to be parallel. A presribed format is not parallel to BE COMPLETE. Out of the game.
D. to be complete - to is not the correct usage. There should not be TO for command subjunctive. Out of the game.
E. be completed. Always the verb should be bare form of the verb(complete) but not completed. Hence out of the game.


For command subjunctive ONLY "BE" is allowed, No other Be form such as is, was, were is allowed
Based on this rule, can we cancel 'C', because the second part has, "and a prescribed format 'is' followed"?
