Nuclear fusion is the force that powers the Sun, the stars, and hydrogen bombs, merging the nuclei of atoms and not splitting them apart, as in nuclear reactors.

(A) merging the nuclei of atoms and not splitting them apart, as in nuclear reactors

(B) merging the nuclei of atoms instead of splitting them apart, like nuclear reactors

(C) merging the nuclei of atoms rather than splitting them apart, as nuclear reactors do

(D) and merges the nuclei of atoms but does not split them apart, as is done in nuclear reactors

(E) and merges the nuclei of atoms, unlike atomic reactors that split them apart

C) rather than is correct usage

to quote Simaq:

For comparing nouns use: Like, due to, instead of.
For comparing verbs: As, rather than, because of.

I don't like the "not splitting" in A and D, for comparing things instead of, rather than and unlike are better.

Not really sure why, but C looks and sounds more correct to me too.

Can anyone explain further?

C
(A) merging the nuclei of atoms and not splitting them apart, as in nuclear reactors
- implies that in nuclear reactors, nuclei are merged and not split

(B) merging the nuclei of atoms instead of splitting them apart, like nuclear reactors
- incorrect comparison between fusion and nuclear reactos.

(C) merging the nuclei of atoms rather than splitting them apart, as nuclear reactors do

(D) and merges the nuclei of atoms but does not split them apart, as is done in nuclear reactors
- implies that in nuclear reactors, nuclei are initially merged before being split apart.

(E) and merges the nuclei of atoms, unlike atomic reactors that split them apart
- incorrectly compares fusion with reactors

One more for C.
What happens during nuclear fusion is compared to what happens in nuclear reactors.
