"to identify" would be the correct idiom. So D and E are out. A and C are doing an incorrect comparison of allergies with milk. Hence A and C are out.

But I'm confused about the usage of "such as to Milk" ?? Anyone ?

allergy to sth- is a correct form, not allergy for sth. Like is not used for giving examples. B IMO

Thank you Chief. I thought we were comparing food allergies with "those" of milk, but the usage of "that" is obviously wrong.

What's the OA for this one? I'm going with (B) for the last portion.

Thanks
