(A) would gradually undermine it
(B) to be a gradual undermining of it

Since verb prediected has appeared it should complement with would verb? Is this correct?

In this sentence , “predicted” works as a reporting verb. When you report something that someone said, you have to modify the verbs used by that person.
In this case, “will” must be modified. Now, it is “would”.
Maybe, you will say "where is the word "will" in the sentence?" Remember that the sentence mentioned a prediction; therefore, someone in the past said "will" in that prediction.

Take a look to the reporting speech rules.

I think I deserve kudos 8-)
