(A) for me too.

C reads as follows:

...directive "prohibiting the sale to other countries of any chemical banned on medical grounds in the United States"

The "of any chemical banned on medical grounds" seems to be qualifying "countries".

Sorry guys, I dont have proper OA. One of my friends was saying that (C) is OA. I posted just for confirming my answer.

I agree with (A).

Agree with A. Directive is a subjunctive verb and it needs a that and a base form of the verb (be)

All capital letter sentences are considered wrong by ETS. ;)

Ok, compare E and A you'll see two major differences. First is "be" vs "is", second is "from sale" vs "from being sold". E is wrong on both counts.

In sentences like "He requires", "We ask", "The president direct", etc., you need to use verbs in their original form. It is equivalent to "should do" but "should" here must be omitted. So it would be "We ask that you type your post in small case letters", or "The president's directive that the weapons be sold to other countries is not right".

Thanks and this help. A is my choice for proper placement of modifier.

isn't the correct idiom is "prohibite something from doing something?"

then why A is correct?

Also "directive" is not a verb, so is it one of the words that require "be" instead of "is"?

can someone answer my question? thanks


I think the correct idiom is prohibit + [noun/pronoun] + from + gerund phrase

the noun/pronoun is optional
