(A) on account of prohibiting
(B) on account of their prohibiting
(C) because prohibitions on
(D) because of prohibiting
(E) because they prohibit

Correct Idiomatic usage is Prohibit/Prohibiting X from Verb+ing

None except (C) follows the rule...

The North American bald eagle is no longer threatened with imminent extinction, primarily because prohibitions on hunting and the ban of a poisonous pesticide have led to a rebound in the eagle population.

Further the sentence maintains //ism-

Prohobition of X AND Ban on Y

Hence IMHO (C) is the best answer

A) on account of prohibiting ---- the modifier consists of a phrase and a clause – Unparallel

(B) on account of their prohibiting --- ‘Their’ has no referent’ , in addition to the modifier being unparallel as in A

(C) because prohibitions on --- correct choice. The complex sentence is properly constructed with a main and a subordinate clause

(D) because of prohibiting ---unparallel subordinate clause.

(E) because they prohibit -- ‘they’ has no referent

(A) on account of prohibiting
(B) on account of their prohibiting
(C) because prohibitions on
(D) because of prohibiting
(E) because they prohibit

The issue is the ambiguity of the pronoun "they" - who is they? According the structure of the sentence, this would imply the bald eagle is doing the prohibiting which is clearly wrong. because x and because y or because x and y

C
