E is the best

A. Changes meaning, no connection between two sentence
Teratomas are unusual forms of cancer because they are composed of tissues such as tooth and bone

not normally found in the organ in which the tumor appears.
What not normally found ? tissues, not "tooth and bone"
there is no connection between the two sentences

B. like cannot be used, it says they are tissues something like toot and bone, but not tooth and bone, always in these cases, "such as" is correct. It is a classic mistake of like.

C same error as in B

D same error as in A

E Correct, uses such as, uses "tissues" to connect the two sentences.
hope this helps....

yes other than "like", there seems to be nothing wrong in B, if "such as" is used instead of "like", B looks fine

awesome explanation to eliminate option A. I just read somewhere about the reduced restrictive clause and A is that sentece .. I used to have problems in recognising this type of things but now I see how that is tested.


"because they are composed of tissues such as tooth and bone that are not
normally found in the organ in which the tumor appears". here 'that are' is removed to make it reduced restrictive clause ..

+1 for ya.

because’ and ‘in that’ in a sentence, mostly ‘in that’ would be correct. ‘In that qualifies’ the previous
sentence, while ‘because’ is just used to show a simple causal relationship. So (E)
