Correct Idiom Just As...So.
Like cannot be followed by clause so Just Like..So is wrong. Thereby D, and E is wrong.
C is wrong because first "it" has no referent.
B "Just as with" does not parallel "so support".

IMO A. But it will be better if it said "Just as the"..."So the".

what is the QA?

"it" here refers to the free computer system linux - only the placement is of "it" is worng. The ununderlined potion already says "support for it"
so you cannot have double it here.

It is referring to "linux" replace "it" by Linux and the sentence following C will read as following:

Linux has been that support for linux within the industry has been growing.

Above sentence is obviously very awkward construction. Thereby C cannot be the answer.

Can you post the OA?
