This is a Subject-Verb Agreement problem. Rules are the subject here, and so the verb must also be plural (prohibit). Eliminate A, B, and E for prohibits. We have a series here, which tells us that this is also a Parallel Construction problem. The words in the series must follow a consistent pattern. D is the only answer choice that boasts of a consistent pattern (harassment, discrimination, and hazing) and therefore is the correct answer.

I agree to D as the best option among the given 5.

Still I feel parallelism in D is not observed completely, as hazing uses "ing" while "discrimination" and "prohibit" are not using "ing" forms.
So would appreciate if someone can explain it a bit more.

prohibit A, B, and C.

Hazing is not a gerund but a noun.
There are some nouns which end with ~ing.

Main Entry: haz┬╖ing
Pronunciation: 'hA-zi[ng]
Function: noun
: the action of hazing; especially : an initiation process involving harassment
