It would be helpful if you mention "GMATPrep" on subject line while you pick questions from that pool.

Thanks.

I'll go with C.

C does well even without 'prohibit X from'

A is awakward; E changes the meaning. B and D have ' them', which is ambiguous

Are you sure 'prohibiting x to do y' is the correct idiom?

I think 'prohibit or prohibiting x from doing y is correct'

Thanks for correcting me.. It's my mystake.

'prohibiting x to do y' -- not correct idiom.. prohibiting x from doing Y is correct idiom.
Also in (C) its not in the " to do" form.

Forbid X to do Y is correct idiom.

Still agree with C..

prohibiting X .. --> (X= disclousre of .....)which is ok.

I will go with E for the following reason.

Adverbial clause starting with "prohibiting" in options A, B and C coveys that it is the requirement to sign NDA and not NDA itself that prohibits....

Option D is wrong for S-V agreement.

E is clear in meaning.

I happened to have that question on the GMAT practice test and the correct answer they give is C.

C is correct for the reason shared above.
