More than thirty years ago Dr.Barbara McCintock, the nobal prize winner, reported that genes can "jump", [u] as perls moving mysteriously from one necklace to another.[u]
(A)
(B) like perls moving mysteriously from one necklace to another

Why B is preferred over A ?

Kaplan says, "like" should be usesd to compare nouns (viz. in phrase comparision) "as" should be used to compare actions (viz. clauses comparision)

Whats say ?

What kaplan says is correct. Choice A means genes "some how" becomes perls and jump from one to another...

choice B keeps genes as genes and compares only the jumping part.

think about this way

if you say Potato like raddish is grown underground means Potato similar to raddish is grown underground

potato as raddish is grown underground means potato once you plan potato underground it grows into a raddish.
