The correct idiom is forbid...to. Only answer C has that.

forbid...from is wrong/ prohibit...from is correct.
forbid for is wrong also.

Knowing the definition contexts also helps::
prohibit means to stop something from happening and is usually used in legal contexts
forbid means to will it not to happen and is usually used in religious contexts



But does anyone know what the idioms are for
forbidding vs prohibiting?


Forbidding as well as prohibiting are used with nouns, not action clauses.

Congress passed legislation prohibiting abortion in 1972.

Most religions have laws forbidding adultery.

I recommend an amendment to the Constitution prescribing a term of six years for the Presidential office and forbidding a reelection. (used in a legal context but it represents a wish rather than a ruling)

I keep getting 'forbidden from'. Maybe I've gotta read up a bit more on idioms. Which idiom lists are you referring?

Hey nice explanations..

First check for "THAT" in the ans as legislation is necessary condition...so we have only 3 choices to choose from i.e. B, C, E...

then check for "FORBID TO" idiom....then select the correct option i.e. C

good one.
forbid X to Y; X forbid Y...forbid here as a verb. e.g "I forbid you to marry him"
forbidding X: As an adjective the "forbidding" modifies X e.g "a dark forbidding sky."

Forbids X to Y is the correct idiom.
