The idiom is Prohibit from + ing, so A and D out.

E changes the meaning and do not have Subject + Verb in the main clause.

C out because with nouns we need like instead of as.

Hence, B is the answer for me.

If I am wrong, please let me know.

+1 for B.

A. as most libraries, prohibits students to borrow
B. like most libraries, prohibits students from borrowing --> Correct, 'like' is used to compare nouns, and uses correct idiom 'Prohibit...from'
C. as most libraries, will prohibit a student from borrowing
D. like most libraries, prohibits students to borrow
E. like most libraries that prohibit a student from borrowing (No main verb)

Hence, B.

The POE here is as vs like. We need like because it is used to compare nouns.
Prohibit to vs prohibit from - prohibit from is correct.
Between B and E, we prefer B because we need to compare for which 'like most libraries' should be a modifier. Hence B

A. as most libraries, prohibits students to borrow

B. like most libraries, prohibits students from borrowing

C. as most libraries, will prohibit a student from borrowing

D. like most libraries, prohibits students to borrow

E. like most libraries that prohibit a student from borrowing



The best answer is B. we have to use like to compare Noun. Prohibit ................from is the perfect idiom.
