Here's the rule...

Require/demand/desire/request/ that something/someone + infinitive verb.
e.g I require that you take Fluffy home.

If it's hard to remember this rule, use 'should' to remind you what form of verb to use. e.g. the drug should undergo pediatric study. You should bring Fluffy home

I have a doubt. Here drug is singular. so what is wrong in saying that drug undergoes like B in this case?

The infinitive of any verb undergo does not respect the singular/plural agreements i.e. to undergo, to buy. You don't say 'to buys'.

As I mentioned, the best way to know what form of verb to use in these types of questions is to use "should" to determine which verb to use. You don't say "The law says that she should buyS the car". The correct sentence is: "The law says that she should buy the car". So just replace the should with require and now you have: "The law requires that she buy the car"

The FDA can require that the drug undergo pediatric study.
The FDA says that the drug should undergo pediatric study.
You wouldn't say "The FDA says that the drug should undergoES pediatric study". So if you replace should with "require", don't use undergoES

Does this help?
