here we are comparing to clauses , so we cant use like
A,D andE are eliminated
now between B and C , C is wordy and use of would is inappropriate
so i will go with B

(A) does not read like an apprentice work
(E) reads unlike an apprentice work

given a better answer choice such as A, when choosing between A & E, why would you go with E?
