    I'd choose A. You need a "be complete" since the clause is introduced
    by "that".

    The sentence that maintains both parallelism and the correct
    verb form seems to be "Bankers require that ... be complete and follow..."

    Hmm, not too sure.

    I'd rule out A and B as they say "at its 1833 founding" which means
    that it was also founded at another time. Founding in 1833 sounds better.

    C has "founded in 1883 for its decision" which incorrectly means
    that it was founded for its decision.

    E "on the acceptance of" looks incorrect.

    POE would lead me to D.

    OA please Smile
