Flip D and E here

D changes the meaning. It means that by law a physician cannot prescribe anything other than medicine....Not correct

E means that the sole person who can prescribe a medine is a physician which is correct

A,B C are awkward

E wins

Guys, I don't think E is right though. The phrase In order to protect the public should modify qualified physician but it seems to modify by law

I think C is the lesser of all the evils.

Resident experts, please comment.

B - means the law is not for protecting the public. Physician is for protecting the public.

Nice question.

I too thought the answer is B, but after Syamee's response I think E looks to be the correct answer.

I think B is wrong "because protecting the public" needs a conjunction to link since it is a subordinate to the rest of the sentence. Thoughts?

I also agreed with E.

After POE only E and C stand. I think E is the best answer over C because it keeps the original emphasis that is "to protect the public" rather than a subordinary unnecessary clause introduced by which.
I mean the purpose of the LAW is to protect the public and E clearly state that.
Overall I think the hard part is to catch whether a clause should be a principal or a subordinary one in the context of the sentence.
