Subject pronouns in subjunctive

Hi,

I have a question about conjugating the verb in the sentence when you have two subject pronouns. 

 The sentence is below

Je doute que vous comprendre______ l'importance de cet evenement. 

Do you use the pronoun that's closest to the verb? Because the answer is

Je doute que vous comprendriez l'importance de cet événement. 


Thank you for help

Hi Nicole, 

Yes, it does, just as in English.

But I am surprised because 

vous comprendriez is the conditional of the verb 'comprendre'

whereas the lesson is about the subjunctive and it should be -

vous compreniez
