(A) Television programs developed in conjunction with the marketing of toys, which was once prohibited by federal regulations, are
- Neither 'toys' are prohibited nor 'marketing of toys' is prohibited, but the development of television programs in conjunction with the marketing. so 'which' is incorrect here.

- 'is' is wrong for 'subject-verb agreement'.
(C) Developing television programs in conjunction with the marketing of toys, as once prohibited by federal regulations, is
- television programs are thriving not developing television programs: subject 'television programs' needed for action 'thriving'.
(D) Federal regulations once prohibited developing television programs in conjunction with the marketing of toys, but they are

A. Television programs developed in conjunction with the marketing of toys, which was once prohibited by federal regulations, are ==> It sound as though "the marketing of toys" was once prohibited...

B. Television programs developed in conjunction with the marketing of toys, a practice that federal regulations once prohibited, is ==> Same as A

C. Developing television programs in conjunction with the marketing of toys, as once prohibited by federal regulations, is ==> Use of 'as' is weird/awkward; also its not the 'developing' rather than the 'programs' that were prohibited

D. Federal regulations once prohibited developing television programs in conjunction with the marketing of toys, but they are ==> Use of 'they' is unclear

E. Federal regulations once prohibited developing television programs in conjunction with the marketing of toys, but such programs are ==> Correct! Correctly conveys that such programs are now permitted..

Ask yourself what is "thriving in the free market conditions" - Television programs.
Subject is plural, so verb has to be plural

are Vs is - are wins.
B, C - out

D - out, "they" pronoun error

A Vs E - A sounds awkward

E for me

Television programs developed in conjunction with the marketing of toys, which was once prohibited by federal regulations, are thriving in the free market conditions permitted by the current Federal Communications Commission.

(A) Television programs developed in conjunction with the marketing of toys, which was once prohibited by federal regulations, are --> the subject here is all the phrase: Television programs developed in conjunction with the marketing of toys, so are is incorrect. Besides, which ...regulations wrongly modifies for toys

(B) Television programs developed in conjunction with the marketing of toys, a practice that federal regulations once prohibited, is --> practice, referring to all the fact stated before, is correctly used to indicate the whole issue and continued by appropriate is

(C) Developing television programs in conjunction with the marketing of toys, as once prohibited by federal regulations, is --> I think prohibited here is ambiguously used: what is prohibited by federal regulations. Use of practice makes the meaning of the sentence more precise

(D) Federal regulations once prohibited developing television programs in conjunction with the marketing of toys, but they are --> they is who: programs or toys or regulations?

(E) Federal regulations once prohibited developing television programs in conjunction with the marketing of toys, but such programs are -->TV programs can't thrive in the free market. It is the practice of the developing of such programs is thriving

(A) Television programs developed in conjunction with the marketing of toys, which was once prohibited by federal regulations, are Tv programs can't be developed in conjunction with the marketing of toys - i.e. you need action noun such as gerund

(B) Television programs developed in conjunction with the marketing of toys, a practice that federal regulations once prohibited, is same as A; an action can be a "a practice", not tv programs

(C) Developing television programs in conjunction with the marketing of toys, as once prohibited by federal regulations, is "as" seems suspect; what is thriving is not "developing" in gerund form, but "tv programs"

(D) Federal regulations once prohibited developing television programs in conjunction with the marketing of toys, but they are "they"? regulations or tv programs?

(E) Federal regulations once prohibited developing television programs in conjunction with the marketing of toys, but such programs are CORRECT - Federal regulations prohibited "developing", but it is tv programs that thrived

How "is" is voilating the subject-verb agreement ?

A practice is singular and hence is is perfectly fine..,,,please comment.

Yes, but in A which refers to toys, not the development, so A is incorrect.

Can we eliminate A on the basis of wrong parallel structure?

idiom is ...X in conjunction with Y.

'Television programs developed' is not parallel with 'the marketing of toys'

The main subject of the sentence is "the television programs" so "are" should be used not "is"

"developing" is a verb of the participle form ...

We need to understand the meaning of the sentence to solve this question.

It is the practice, "Television programs developed in conjunction with the marketing of toys", that is prohibited by the federal regulations; and the "television programs" are the ones which "are thriving".

We need to find a answer that delivers the correct meaning. Pick E.
