A - out, it's not clear what these are refering to.
B-out, is which refering to expert?
C-ok
D-IMO too wordy
E- the ending of this choice is really awkward.

I pick C

We're comparing similarities between two things, an expert and a computer. So 'like' is appropriate. D sounds very disjointed, while E suggests the expert is to be used.

C is the best choice.

I pick C. Use like to compare, so A,B are out. D is too wordy and E not sure what is 'to be used'.

Another way to confirm this is C is to maintain parallel verb tense.

OA is C.
OE: A correct answer must maintain parallel structure. In choice A, the three-part series( to diagnose..., deciding, ...or other purposes...) lacks parallelism. C, the best choice, replaces A's third element with/or such purposes as; this phrase functions as a stem for the other two elements, which are recast as two parallel phrases-diagnosing..or deciding...Thus, choice C not only manages the parallel structure but avoids the less effective other purposes such as these at the end of choice A. Choice E uses faulty parallel structure( to be used..., deciding ..., or the like). In B and D, which and the use of which introduce sentence elements that lack antecedents or reference. In adition, D is wordy.
