pearls actually don't move from one necklace to another on their own. so any option that indicates that pearls really move is incorrect. So eliminate C D and E

Between A and B, the choice is between as and like

"as" is used to join two clauses, ie, noun with verb. There is not verb in "pearls moving ...." (moving is a participle)

Therefore, to introduce the phrase, we need "like". Ans is B
