Hi,
I think forbit can take both "from/to" as idiom, but why A) is wrong and C) is correct?

Have a look at Idioms in Manhattan SC. It says " forbid X to Y".

GMAT English differ from the accepted norms of English

I think "forbid from" is incorrect. It should always be "forbid to".

I checked the dictionary but

forbid can take the following

forbid + object + from ing
forbid + object + to do
forbid that SV

So, I don't understand why A is wrong...
