A) picture him as resembling
B) picture him to resemble
C) imagine him to be like

E) see him as being similar as


C is the best answer. Here, the comparision is between William Randolf and the caricature portrayed in the film, therefore c seems to be the correct one.

D and E are definitely out.

I think C is the best choice as you are comparing nouns.

^ A ^

"to picture A as B" is the correct idiom. So B is out.


C) imagine him to be like ---> "to be like" sounds awkward
D) would imagine him as ---> if they have.., they would.. : WRONG
E) see him as being similar as ---> Definitely wrong.

A is the best choice. 'as resembling' is used to compare a likeness to the caricature in the film

The rest of the choices are either awkard or unidiomatic
