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"

A. drug that they intend to be used both by adults and children must
B. drug whose intended use is for adults and children as well
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]

“Mandate” is the verb used in the subjunctive mood or called bossy verb. Therefore, the use of "must" is redundant. So, Eliminate choice A, D, and E.
Now we are left with B and C. Answer choice B is redundant with “and” along with “as well”. Hence, C is the answer.

choice b is redundant, and also suffers meaning error
"use is for adult and children" is not direct and is different meaning from " use by both adults and children". "use is for adult" dose not mean "use by adult".
B is gone

COMMAND SUBJUNCTIVE , MEANING, PRONOUNS



This is a classic example of the command subjuntive, whose structure is the following


COMMAND VERB + SUBJECT + BASE VERB


The BASE VERB is the INIFINITIVE WITHOUT "TO". Most importantly, NO MODAL HELPING VERBS ARE ALLOWED





A. drug that they intend to be used both by adults and children must ------- 1. Pronoun "they" does not have a referent. 2. Correlative idiom BOTH X AND Y is not parallel. 3. Modal helping verb "must" is redundant with the subjunctive construction, which should be COMMAND VERB + SUBJECT + BASE VERB


B. drug whose intended use is for adults and children as well ---------- It is not clear whether as well is complementing "children" or is linking the verb "undergo".


C. drug intended for use by both adults and children --------- CORRECT


D. drug, if they intend that it be used by adults and also children, must ----------- 1. Pronoun "they" does not have a referent. 3. Modal helping verb "must" is redundant with the subjunctive construction, which should be COMMAND VERB + SUBJECT + BASE VERB. 3. "IF" changes the meaning.


E. drug, if intended for use both by adults and children, must --------- 1. Correlative idiom BOTH X AND Y is not parallel. 2. Modal helping verb "must" is redundant with the subjunctive construction, which should be COMMAND VERB + SUBJECT + BASE VERB . 3. "IF" changes the meaning.
