I pick C.
Is this correct?

I don't know if this is the correct reason, but I somehow think that 'must' is unnecessary because of mandate (eliminate A, D, E )
Choice B..will create.. "and children as well undergo".. awkward construction.
Choice C...concise and no change in the meaning of the sentence.

Refering to query from
perseverance84 in another forum ...I will try and answer that

Clearly A B and D are ruled out for pronoun antecedent (A and D)....B needs a must

Use of mandate implies subjective verb usage which is always plural. The correct sentence needs to have a construction as follows

Trigger word for Subjunctive verb usage(Demand/Dictate/Insist/Mandate/Propose/Recommend/Request/Stipulate/Suggest) + that+ subject +Subjunctive verb (plural) .

in the above ans choices only C fits the bill with construction. Note that" intended for use by both adults and children " is verb-ed modifier modifying drug and undergo is the subjunctive verb (plural).


Hope it helps
