- proposal is on "cooking food" rather than "fire" or "using fire"
- acc to anthropologist , because of "cooking with fire", humans have hominid features rather than "use of fire"

my take is C

It's either B or C.

According to Cambridge:

"date back" phrasal verb

to have existed a particular length of time or since a particular time:

This tradition dates back to medieval times.

This being the case, I'll take (C) for the active voice. Not sure about "like" at the end though.

Well I pick B for several reasons!
the use of fire is better as it is the use of fire that could explain the homnid features. Also B is parallel. The last reason is, the usage of such as. Like does not go well here.
