A) does not read like an apprentice work
Here we are comparing how a novel reads and 'apprentice work' - which is wrong

(B) seems not to read as an apprentice work
Same problem as A

(C) does not seem to read as an apprentice work would
I will go with this. Here, there is an implicit 'read' at the end.

(D) does not read like an apprentice work does
need an object, like cannot be followed by a clause ('an apprentice work does')

(E) reads unlike an apprentice work
Same problem as A

I might be wrong but I feel answer is (A)
(C) looks a bit redundant and wordy.

If possible please elobrate.

Can we say "I do not speak like Jane would."? I think it is ok to say "I do not speak like Jane does", and I do not think "would" can go with "does/do" concurrently, so I choose D.

Correct me if I am wrong.

Really good question....

it's testing the use of "like" and "as"


i just don't understand the difference between:

"does not read like" and "reads unlike"


anyways, i found the answer here:

I am afraid none of the explations work.

'like' is goes ok with 'apprentice work'

but the question is whether we can compare how a 'novel reads' with 'apprentice work'
