Sound can travel through water for enormous distances, prevented from dissipating its acoustic energy as a result of boundaries in the ocean created by water layers of different temperatures and densities.

Meaning :
Sound can travel through water for enormous distances how? its acoustic energy is prevented from dissipated by boundaries in the ocean created by water layers of different temperatures and densities.

(A) prevented from dissipating its acoustic energy as a result of


1. Prevented is an verb-ed modifier that incorrectly modifies to distance
2.The phrase 'as a result of boundaries in the ocean' does not convey the meaning properly . it should be dissipated by boundaries in the ocean

(B) prevented from having its acoustic energy dissipated by

1. Prevented is an verb-ed modifier that incorrectly modifies to distance


(C) its acoustic energy prevented from dissipating by

-- Correct .. Noun + noun modifier is used correctly here .

(D) its acoustic energy prevented from being dissipated as a result of

1. Being is not used in the sentence correctly
2.The phrase 'as a result of boundaries in the ocean' does not convey the meaning properly . it should be dissipated by boundaries in the ocean


(E) preventing its acoustic energy from dissipating by

1.This choice has meaning issue ..preventing is a comma verbING modifier.. which illogically tell that sound prevents its acoustic energy itself..


C is my best choice and is the answer
