The template of the idiom is ‘prohibit x from doing y’; Choice c is correct- ‘prohibiting landfills from accepting leaves, brush, and grass clippings’

(A) prohibiting landfills to accept leaves, brush, and grass clippings
(B) prohibiting that landfills accept leaves, brush, and grass clippings
(C) prohibiting landfills from accepting leaves, brush, and grass clippings
(D) that leaves, brush, and grass clippings cannot be accepted in landfills
(E) that landfills cannot accept leaves, brush, and grass clippings


This is an example that tests correct idiomatic expressions.

Rule:
RIGHT: PROHIBITS X FROM Y
WRONG: PROHIBITS THAT
WRONG: PROHIBITS X TO Y

Using this rule, we can quickly eliminate A, B.
D & E can be eliminated because C is better and crisp. It has the correct idiomatic expression that the author is trying to use in his sentence structure.

Easy one got it within 30 seconds..

The correct idiom is "prohibit x from Y"
Only "C" uses the right idiom thus it is a correct choice...

When the sentence uses ban, doesn't the use of the word prohibit make it redundant?

Meaning wise is it right to say "prohibiting landfills to accept" how come landfills can accept anything landfill is not a person or organisation.. usually we prohibit someone who obeys ... landfills can not obey orders.
