I think we need to use "like" here and not "such as" because tissues are "like tooth and ..." and not a subset of "tooth and ..." as is implied by the use of "such as". So A,D,E are out.

In B "that" make the clause as dependent, while we are looking for a independent clause.

IMO (C) is best.

I think A is the answer.

B - 'that are' implies that only tooth and bone are not found. But the original sentence implies that tissues like them are not found.

C and E - redundant use of 'tissues'.

D - 'tissues such as...is' is missing subject-verb agreement. It should be 'tissues such as...are'.

Do let me know the OA.

(A) because they are composed of tissues such as tooth and bone
(B) because they are composed of tissues like tooth and bone that are
(C) because they are composed of tissues, like tooth and bone, tissues
(D) in that their composition, tissues such as tooth and bone, is
(E) in that they are composed of tissues such as tooth and bone, tissues

tissues are not like tooth and bones, we need to use such as.

D says composition is not mormally found, but it is clear that tissues are not normally found in those organs.

I'm sure it's E
"such as" is needed because we are relating a subgroup to a larger global one.
Ex: I like fruits such as apples --> right
Ex: I like fruits like apples --> wrong: fruits are compared to apples
Here, "tooth and bone" are part of a larger group: tissues
In A, it is like "tooth and bone" we not normally found[...] when it is the "tissues" which were not normally found[...]

I think you have to use 'such as' here. Like is incorrect, as Paul correctly pointed out. Hence it's E
