My answer is B.
One of Ronald Reagan’s first acts as President was to rescind President Carter’s directive prohibiting the sale to other countries of any chemical banned on medical grounds in the United States

My basis: directive should be near prohibiting

What's the OA?

C, D and E are straight out.

A sounds like "United States be prohibited from sale to other countries". :lol: :lol:

So this should be B.

Why is it not A?


In addition to Dahiya's comment, "directive that~" is, according to all my verbal resources, unidiomatic.

Directive on is quite commonly used

I believe directive is always followed by an adjective or by some introductory phrase
