If a drug that is already on the market has the potential to help adults and children who have the same disease, or if it is widely used in children and the absence of labeling seems dangerous, the FDA can require that the drug undergo pediatric study.

a - that the drug undergo
b - that the drug undergoes
c - that the drug is to undergo
d - the drug undergoing
e - the drug to have to undergo

I got this one wrong ..... Please explain....

require signifies subjunctive mood

D & E out

Among A, B, C

C uses infinitive form of verb with to. Wrong

B says undergoes as if it is will happen with a certainty.

A remains and is my answer.

A

I think the SC is testing for subjunctive mood.

require + that + infinitive form of the verb ( infinitive form of the verb without "to")

require + that + (to)undergo

Only A fits the bill. However, I don't like the way A sounds.yucky !!

Here is my cents worth...

1.You can ask someone to do something....
2. You can request that someone do something....
3. You require that someone do something....

It must be A.

B is incorrect because in subjunctive case "undergoes" is incorrect.

exactly !
to undergo - infinitive
so we need "undergo " here.

A is the correct answer. Clear case of Subjunctive.

After some bossy verbs such as Require or Propose, and after the word Lest, we use subjunctive.
In subjunctive mood, either we use the the infinitive without TO, or the bare of the verb (unlike indicative mood, in subjunctive mood we don't use the 'S with third person singular number)

In this sentence, the FDA can require that indicates subjunctive is required. Hence, the drug undergo pediatric study is correctly written.

In other options, the highlighted parts have errors:
b - that the drug undergoes
c - that the drug is to undergo
d - the drug undergoing
e - [that missing] the drug to have to undergo

Ans: A
