I concur with HIMALAYA.
The answer should be E.
I am not completely sure on this one, but the usage of a comma right before the underlined portion also suggests that a conjunction AS should be followed, not LIKE.

just as...so do is a vlid idiom I think

I am not sure if "Just as" is a no no in GMAT. Are there standards like that?

IMO, it is E, as Himalay mentioned. "as" is used to compare action.
