Correct option is E)

Strictures means a restriction on a person or activity. A restriction has been passed on the magazine. Hence, Option E is correct. Among the rest of the options, laws means the system of rules which a particular country or community recognizes as regulating the actions of its members and which it may enforce by the imposition of penalties, ban means an official or legal prohibition, penalty means a punishment imposed for breaking a law, rule, or contract, codes means a system of words, letters, figures, or symbols used to represent others, especially for the purposes of secrecy. These options do not express the intended meaning, hence incorrect.
