(B) is definitely out for the use of "do".

I'd choose (E). But I'd appreciate other people's explanation too.

do in (B) refers to "accelerate and caricature the aging process"

i would select A.. by using POE..
(A) like progeria and Werner's syndrome
(B) as progeria and Werner's syndrome do
because of DO...
(C) like the case of progeria and Werner's syndrome
the case of is unnecessary here.
(D) as progeria and Werner's syndrome are
not plurlar so 'are' is not necessary

(E) such as is the case with progeria and Werner's syndrome
is the case with unnecessary..

Is progeria and Werner's syndrome one thing or two things? I thought they are two things.

no it wouldn't because
Like is used to compare nouns.
As is used to compare actions.

between Like and Such As
Like is used when we want to say "similar to"
Such As is used when we want to give examples..

i hope this makes sense..

Does it mean if we are saying one thing we can use like, if we are talking about more than two things we use such as?

Or can we use "like" even when we are talking about two things?

Hello,
in my opinion, A and D are the same. others are definitely wrong.

But we all forget the supreme principle in AT test; that is, if answer choice A is right, why we don't pick. So, A is better than D, at least more concise. :P

(A) because first, B , D and E are out.
Only (A) and (C) are qualified as they use like to compare. Note that a comparison is the key thing tested here.

Out of A and C, of coure it is A because C is unnecessarily wordy

well look at this way..

its not about two things..

its like this..

fruit like Apples and Grapes
means you may not want apples and grapes but some other fruits similar.

where as
when you say Such as apples and grapes.
it means you need fruits and egs are apples and grapes..

I am confused, to me "B" makes the most sense. As you said "as" is used to compare actions....I think in this stem we r comparing actions/effects of syndromes and not the syndromes themselves i.e. to accelerate and caricature the aging process. Shouldn't it be "as" in this case then ? Plz explain.
