D should be it (tough for me! )

POE: eliminated all choices other than C and D, because of "Apples to Oranges rule"

Between C & D, I guess like is used for comparision and also C is more wordy "Seems to read" can be replaced by "reads"

A for me. Need to make 2 contrasting sentences.

It is her first novel, but it is (still is) a work of a perfectionist.

if D is to be correct, we need "AS" and, of course, a good contrast

Vote for A too.
Cant be D: do you say "that opinion sounds like a genius' opinion does"?
"read" in the question is on the same boat with "sound" as above.

A is it.

B,D - Not grammatically correct.
C - too wordy
E - a close contester but logically false. However, applying logic, because it is her first novel, the sentence filler should be 'it reads like an apprectice work' or 'it does not read like an apprentice work'. The first filler degrades and the other filler compliments the novel. E does neither.

Guys.. can somebody explain why A is right.
in D, the usage of "does" is not wordy but necessary.
