I think the key in this sentence is the correct use for comparision. cheers

A.Adam Smith’s two major books are to democratic capitalism what
'what' refers to nothing
B.Adam Smith’s two major books are to democratic capitalism like
like compares nouns, in this case wrong, this answer was teasing me
C.Adam Smith’s two major books are to democratic capitalism just as
correct comparison: 2 X are to Y (just) as A is to B
D.Adam Smith wrote two major books that are to democratic capitalism similar to
'similar to' is wrong for comparision
E.Adam Smith wrote two major books that are to democratic capitalism what
'what' is unidiomatic for comparision

Answer is E. C is wrong as the leading figure is not the books but Adam himself.
