A is fine

B and D are out because they use like..

E has different meaning...

C has no parallelism. Could be made right by

I am inclined to A but not quite about the meaning of
the word 'present' , can you say something is more
'present' than another thing ?

Answer should be A. Even though, the sentence has an awkward construct, it is grammatically correct.

This is an as versus like question, and the use of as is correct, therefore B and D are out. E changes the meaning. C is even more awkward than the original sentence, and it changes the tense by using "was"
