^ A ^

All others have modifier problems, moreover, in E the verb "is" too far from the subject, so it is not clear.

I have just found that this question have been one of the most discussed questions here..

I think the reason why A can be wrong is the problem with
"prohibit .. from Ving"

A does not have a correct usage for this.

However, I still don't like C as there is the modifier problem. It is not clear...

There is more discussion here:
