E is CORRECT

A, B, C - incorrect - awkward - law protect people ..not by law protect people

A, D - incorrect - wrongly says that a qualified physician can only prescribe medicine, and not do anything else

C - incorrect - wrongly says that medicines are protecting the public
don't you think that in options D & E, a noun should follow "In order to protect the public,".

Had it been just law after the comma, it would have been the correct choice.
IMO B. It says "...law,.....,protecting people. " , which makes sense.

Instructors...... can you please advise? Smile
