Here is my choice: 'E'

A & B - verb agreement problem, 'are'.

C - I think, 'formally' should be attached to both sanctioned & prohibited.
here it sounds like it's attached to sactioned only.

D - 'a' is joined only with sanctioned.

E - sounds better...

I also scaled down to C and E. But I think C is better coz "means" in this sentence is a singular now, thus we need "a".

C.

A/B have wrong verb, so they are easily ruled out. "formally" is an adjective so should be close to the noun it modifies. D is out because of misplaced modifier.

now the dilema is between C and E. C should be it as it is asingular noun.

"formally" is the adv supporting two "adj"s "sanctioned" and "prohibited" ---> it should be placed as closely to these adjs as possible.

'are' is wrong - A and B are out.
E will result in an awkward sentence if used
D is awkward with the placing of 'formally'
C is the best choice.
