Directive that calls for subjunctive

Eliminate C and D

B: that modifier placement issue – logically “that” modifies “any chemical” – and it is placed too far off: 2. that was awkward

E: Being usage

Choice A looks quite good to most of people, however it is not the correct answer. Because choice A nonsensically states that the directive prohibits chemicals from doing something. You can't tell chemicals what to do or not to do. You can prohibit the sale of chemicals, but you can't prohibit chemicals from being sold.

IMO C.

This is not a subjunctive case. There is no subjunctive word.

Its C.

The answer is C
However A looks very enticing.
It means chemicals themselves be banned from sale.
In that respect C is clearer
Nice discussion

I have doubt - : A uses "prohibited". I know US can be prohibited from selling. But can the chemical be prohibited from sale ?
