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

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.

"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!!

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)]

A should be the correct answer.

I think C should be the one.

"bankers" is the subject while "financial information" is the object.

A is the right answer. The idiom goes like this "REQUIRE X Y"....... require X to be Y is not the correct usage.

It is A. It seems this is very easy question if you know the rules. Please refer Manhattan GMAT.

require.... (A (ask), B (bag), O (order), P (prefer), U (urge) R (require) (ABPOUR): If you come across any of these verbs
then they need either "bare form" or "infinitive form" after that.

Here it requires "bare from" because, construction of sentence is as follow,

require that "subject" "bare form of verb" and "bare form"....(if that is not there then we need infinitive form).

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

Some thoughts:
1. Require that X be Y:
Example:
The law requires that they be regular.
2. Require X to do Y:
Example:
The law requires the women to do their duties.

Now, come to the sentence:
the structure of the sentence is "require that X be Y". So, B and D are out at a first glance. C is out for using "prescribed", and E is out for using another clause.

Parallelism is also an issue..

require...complete...follow

A is the only logical statement
