(A) similar to the way human beings breathe [similar – is used to check the similarity between two things – eliminate it]
(B) similarly to human beings who are breathing [ similarly creates run-on – eliminate it]
(C) just like the breathing of human beings [ like is used to compare two nouns – eliminate it]
(D) as human beings when breathing [Hold it]
(E) just as human beings do when they breathe [Hold it]

Between D and E – “as” is used for clauses – but D has no verb

Answer: E

(A) similar to the way human beings breathe
(B) similarly to human beings who are breathing
(C) just like the breathing of human beings -> improper comparison
(D) as human beings when breathing-> awkward, changes the meaning
(E) just as human beings do when they breathe-> || with what the fruit does during its respiration

Please see the bolded words and let me know if it helps.
