This is a tough one, I'll take a crack at

The answer choices would be between A and C.
"without any" sounds awkward in A however. So I would go with choice C. To me in this question its not that answer C sounds right, its that the other anwers sound very wrong. Sorry, no real explanation.

my answer, C. without any is wrong in A and B. B is a weird construction :twisted: C clearly states that no commoner can enter the site without proper permission. seems good in the context :)
D and E are wordy.
