Mandate is the verb used in the subjunctive mood or called bossy verb. Therefore, use "must" is redundant. Eliminate choice A, D, and E. Choice B is also redundant with "and" along with "as well"

Mandate is "Bossy word" so C is only choice, You can not use must, should, may when there is Bossy word, neither "to"

Nope, E is also not parallel

drug, if intended for use both by adults and children, must

"both by adults and children" is not parallel. The correct version would be "both by adults and by children"

C. drug intended for use by both adults and children
D. drug, if they intend that it be used by adults and also children, must
E. drug, if intended for use both by adults and children, must


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

Correct answer is C

FDA rule Implemented that blah blah blah :- Subjunctive Mood
Subjunctive mood-used for wish, imaginary conditions, orders, commands, suggestions, demands, situations that are contrary to given fact-never takes must, should in construction.

Use of "Must" is WRONG in all other three options A,D,E

Option B is wrong because "as well" is redundant ...

Just to add. Even if the parallelism would have been right then also the option would have been wrong. The two commas make the phrase non-essential, although the context demands an essential modifier.

The "bossy" Verbs that indicate subjunctive include the following:
- Propose
- Recommend
- Request
- Insist
- Stipulate, suggest
- Mandate
- Advice
- Demand
Or also known as PRR IS MAD.
These verb take the form [Verb] + that [base form]
