I can't understand the below sentence:

Indicate by check mark whether the registrant files or will file annual reports under cover Form 20-F or Form 40-F.

Issues:
1.Who indicate the whole thing?
Maybe it is formal to write such as :

Indicating by check mark whether the registrant files or will file annual reports under cover Form 20-F or Form 40-F.

Indicated by check mark whether the registrant files or will file annual reports under cover Form 20-F or Form 40-F.

To indicate by check mark whether the registrant files or will file annual reports under cover Form 20-F or Form 40-F.
 

2.check mark is a noun? or Indicate by check (subject) + mark (verb) + whether clasue (object) ?

Please break down it into subject ,verb,object ,and explain the meaning.

This is an imperative sentence, so the unexpressed subject is "you."

Indicate (imperative verb)

by check mark (adverbial phrase) (check mark is a noun meaning this symbol: ✓)

whether... is an interrogative adverb that introduces a noun clause which serves as the object of the sentence.

As a whole, the sentence means you should check the box if the registrant has filed or will file the reports referenced in the forms listed in the sentence.

This is the same structure as any imperative sentence.

(unexpressed "You") [subject] Buy [verb] some bread [object] at the store [adverbial phrase]!
