Answer should be B

"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.
