E.

A-As rare as is not parallel nor does it make sense
B-same as A
C-rarer and rarer is redundant
D-like should not be used when citing examples (such as is preferred)

mm007, can you kindly remember to post OAs for your question after people have a chance to answer?

Thank you.

The rarer .... the more ( parallel)

Also for examples we can use "Such as" but not Like...

E is the best.
