    The answer is B. You can't use A even if you drop "as soon as possible." The reason is that it is ungrammatical to say "suggest someone to do something" in English. You have to say "suggest *that* someone *do* something," where the verb should be in the subjunctive mood. If you want to use suggest, then the sentence should read" the bank manager suggested that I open a deposit account as soon as possible."
