Problems with initial sentence. "that" is missing after evidence. Generally we say Scientists find new evidence that ...... Use of "like" is incorrect, here we need "such as". Similar errors are also repeated in B and E. So we are left with C, and D.
I think "they experiencing" is less idiomatic then "as experiencing". So I will go for D, however "in much the same way" in C makes more sense.
Anybody else is welcome to comment on preference of C over D or vice versa with explanations.

Well there is a 'their' in the non-underlined part so 'person' ones (D and E) are out. Take out A as well because 'like' wont fly here.

Now left with B and C.

I'd pick B though my natural tendency is to lean towards the one with 'that' in it but C is not parallel as it uses 'register' and 'experiencing' - not going well together.

Ok I see the folly of going with A. I am inclined more towards B then based on the points stated above since D doesn't go with the latter part of the sentence. That was a good explanation.

I totally agree with your explanations. Going with B.

Oh mbawaters, you are great! Seeing the non-underlined part is a red flag in my head. But sometimes, it disappeared in my head! :lol:

Many thanks!

OA is C, but I never see the sentence with as...as they experiencing..."

Is there an OE? If not, can someone who choose C explain why the OA is C?

aaargh...i was torn between A and C and went with A.
Of course, I hadnt paid attention to the "like" in A. :evil:

I still dont understand why C is the answer .What ellipsis are we talking about ?

Evidence That - Idiom (A, B Out)
'Person' does not agree with 'their' (D, E Out)
C Wins, ( Though lousy :) )
