The meaning of the sentence is to convey that a category of substances is prohibited. That category is of "Illegal drugs".

Hence we require "or" & "any" to signify the exhaustive list of illicit drugs examples of which are anabolic steroids & human growth hormone.

Hence D is correct choice.


Thanks,

IMO B

A. and no- prohibits no illegal drug- changes the meaning that is already established
B. and any- park it for later
C. or no- same error as A
D. or any- park it for later
E. or anything that would be an- 'an' (singular) -can't be the article for drugs (plural)

Between B & D, I chose B because policy prohibits everything in the list of illegal drugs (so 'and' is appropriate here) but not any one of them, otherwise 'or' can be used

Thanks

Major League Baseball policy prohibits the use of anabolic steroids, human growth hormone, and no illegal drugs.

A. and no --- 'prohibits' and 'no' are double negatives meaning that encourage illegal drugs.
B. and any -- -'and' is the wrong conjunction; it will mean that the policy prohibits the combination of the three items and not when any of them is individually used.
C. or no -- 'no' is double negative.
D. or any -- correct choice.
E. or anything that would be an -- 'that would be' is wrong.

I feel B 'and' is right here.
We are saying that Policy prohibits the use of A, B and C - This means that policy prohibits the use of all 3.
If we use 'or' The meaning changes to - The policy prohibits the use of one of the 3 - Is this right?

If the question said - Policy prohibits 'products' that are A, B and C - In this case 'and' doesn't make sense; 'or' does.
Because you are looking at products that are all 3 if we use 'AND'

Baseball definitely doesn't want all 3 of them; so we should use 'AND' here not 'OR'

Please correct me if I am wrong.

Major League Baseball policy prohibits use of anabolic steroids, human growth hormone, and no illegal drugs.

A. and no --> double negative
B. and any --> "prohibits A, B or and C" construction is correct
C. or no --> same as A
D. or any --> correct
E. or anything that would be an --> an illegal drugs ??

B is incorrect

and means players could theoretically use one of those

or means players cannot use any of the mentioned items
