Can somebody tell why it is conduise but not conduit?


It has something to do with il faut que triggering the subjunctive , which uses the same text as the past tense, without it being part tensed.

You'll notice it with Il faut que nous ....ions. etc


Just to add that the old Duolingo Tips and Notes are at https://duome.eu/tips/en/zz and you can jump to the grammar rules for the Subjunctive Present using the Table of Contents at the start.
