I thought C and then checked spoiler

Problem with B - First , there is no need for Who
Second , there should be a comma before "Who"

C has correct idiom just as... so

E would have been more apt because it avoids just, since just is always wordy, but it breaks parallelism

With choice C, shouldn't it be like .... so does a ...

I picked B because C was lacking the "does" but I'm guessing does can be abbreviated in this instance?

Can someone please clarify?

Thanks,

How about D? I thought "Like" is used to describe a noun.

As we can see the BOLD letters mismatch with their BOLD mates, option (C) has the best usage of "just as...so"
needs a background is placed paralleled with needs specialized .

I also can go to C

E is gramatical and logic but, compared to C, it is not so parallel. Meaning in C is better.

I doubt this is from gmatprep. gmatprep sc never ask us to find a reason to eliminate E.

pls, post the screenshot of this question.

I can ensure you that this is a SC from GMATPREP .. E is breaking parallelism

C is correct because it uses the correct idiom : Just as .. So ... and the portions are perfectly parallel ..

Just like the background in art history needed by an archaeologist in order to evaluate finds of ancient art, the nautical archaeologist needs specialized knowledge of the history of ship design in order to understand shipwrecks.

First look: idiom(just as, so), parallelism, like versus as

A) Just like the background in art history needed by an archaeologist in order to evaluate finds of ancient art, the Wrong - "just like" is not an idiom; "like" as a preposition carries nouns follow (never clauses); verb tense "needed is not parallel with "needs"; "so" needed to complete idiom ("just as, so")

B) Just as an archaeologist who needs a background in art history to evaluate finds of ancient art, a Wrong - "Just as" in first clause must have "so" in second clause; relative pronoun "who" is not parallel with second clause

C) Just as an archaeologist needs a background in art history to evaluate finds of ancient art, so a Correct

D) Like the archaeologist who evaluates finds of ancient art and requires a background in art history, so the Wrong - "like" and "so" are not idiomatic; "like" as a preposition carries nouns follow (never clauses); "who" is not parallel with second clause

E) As evaluating finds of ancient art requires an archaeologist who has the background in art history, so the Wrong - clauses are not parallel, so the idiom (as x, so y) does not work

IMO C

the pattern of choice E is grammatical. but E contain the illogic comparision

evaluating required as the archeologist needs

is not logic comparision

I came across this post and saw many questions that i had regarding the use of like and as.

Let me add my two cents to this. Maybe it will help. :)

Like is used to compare "things" or nouns. e.g. Paul is a champion in the district just like his sister Ann was four years ago.

As is used to compare phrases e.g. Just as Paul's team is the best in the district, Ann's team is the best in the country.

In the question above choice C maintains this // parallel structure using "just as a.. needs a" and "so a.... needs a "

"as" here is used compare both phrases.

I hope this helps :-D
