Olga, it is an idiom.

modeled after is an idiom and cannot be changed. like is fine but it only says the similarities. but the meaning is different in the sentence it is as if it reminds you smth. let's say building is modeled after TWIN towers of NY. or like this is NAMED AFTER so if you see anything like this just choose the one with after.
also Like should not be used to show the similarities of human body and sculture. but the main thing here is MODELED AFTER. which is idiom

on a test day i wud have gone for A.
But since you have mentioned the OA, I think it is because, GMAT eng considers apostrophes ''s' as an awkward construction.

I dont know may be im wrong...

Agree,

1-the correct idiom MODELED AFTER, leaves us either B or D.
2-only similar things can be compared, face to face, body to body. D fails to do that it compares face of statue to mother.....
and in B comparison is clear. It is fixed by usage of
............that of..............

Modeled after is the correct idiom. A,C,E are out.
D uses 'made' which is the wrong verb as you model the face of a statue after someone, and not made the face of a statue after someone.

B is best.

I don't think this is good advice in general.
