picked D first

ans: B?

- 'as an adult' doesn't make sense to me
- rest have "children:adults" and "they" together, making the sentence ambiguous

OA?

it must be D. we want to compare the way children do something to the way adults to do something, so you must have 'do'.

'Like' is to compare nouns and 'as' is to compare actions. We are comparing actions so eliminate A and B. Then eliminate C and E because we are comparing children's organization of attention and perceptions to adult's organization of attention and perceptions NOT the adult.

Only D remains.

D is the winner here.

The comparison is between actions:
1) children do not do something

Hence we need an "as" as well as a linking/helping verb "do" => C

When like is used, the format should be Verb+Like+Noun/Pronoun
When as is used, the format should be As+Subject+Verb

Remember that you must ensure parallelism with unlike, even though unlike indicates that the two items are not like each other.

Right: UNLIKE you. I danced last night. (You did not dance last night.)
