would like C.....


like an expert (using like for comapring nouns)

"such purposes as diagnosing equipment breakdowns" such as for quoting examples

using "whether" which is correct and not "whether or not" which is redundant

Eliminate A because its not parallel (diagnose/deciding).
Eliminate B because its not clear what the 'which' refers to.
Eliminate D because its too verbose.
Eliminate E because it sounds like the expert can be used to diagnose
Thus ans is C

even though its a very "ancient" post, i would like to know what's wrong with B.

"such purposes as" sounds more weird than " purposes such as"...
plz correct me if i am wrong

B) as an expert does, which may be used for purposes such as diagnosing equipment breakdowns or deciding whether to authorize a loan

which modifies the noun preceding the comma. What is in this case "does"; it is a verb and not a noun. Thus incorrect.

"such purposes as" and "purposes such as" are both correct usage. It depends what author wants to convey.

If the author writes:
purposes such as diagnosing equipment breakdowns or deciding whether to authorize a loan.

Here, such as followed by "purposes" is referring to entire purposes that exist in this world AND then gives only two examples out of those: diagnosing equipment breakdowns or deciding whether to authorize a loan.

When author writes:
such purposes as diagnosing equipment breakdowns or deciding whether to authorize a loan
Then the author is actually talking about only two types of purposes specifically that the computers will be capable of, viz. diagnosing equipment breakdowns or deciding whether to authorize a loan, thus "such X as examples" is more apt.
