In 1920, the United States Congress passed the Prohibition Act, sometimes referred to as the Noble Experiment, prohibiting citizens to sell, manufacture, and transport alcoholic beverages.

A. prohibiting citizens to sell, manufacture, and transport alcoholic beverages --- prohibited to is wrong.

B. prohibiting that citizens sell, manufacture, and transport alcoholic beverages --- prohibiting that citizens sell and so on gives an antithetical twist.

C. prohibiting citizens from selling, manufacturing, and transportation of alcoholic beverages -- third item transportation is not so parallel with the first two gerunds namely selling and manufacturing

D. prohibited alcoholic beverages from being sold, manufactured, and transported by the citizens -- A comma splice.

E. that prohibited citizens from selling, manufacturing, and transporting alcoholic beverages --- the best choice.

In general, the order of events is rather strange. You should first manufacture, then transport and then sell. Per se, the order stated in the text is amateurish and prickly.
