That sounds unnatural in English, but "It is forbidden to eat in the library" is correct.

"It is forbidden to eat in the library" is one of the accepted translations.

´...is banned´ is also correct, but marked wrong.

I wonder why my answer 'Eating is not allowed in the library' was marked wrong. The sense is exactly the same as 'prohibited'.

Sorry, we had 8 variations but forgot this one. This is a great example of how the community improves the course. Many thanks.

Hmm ... interesting. It´s not a subtlety I´ve ever noticed, but I can see it´s useful.
