That's right. Just as Congress is.. so Parliament is..

Just as.. so. is a correct idiom. IMO, D is the correct answer.

I concur; the correct idiomatic expression is "just as X, so Y."
X:Congress is the legislative branch of...
Y:Parliament is the legislative body of...

The correct response is D.
