The key here is:

Like: refers to something like it, but not it.

Such as: is used when presenting examples. Animals such as lions and tigers live in the wild.

A, all other statements have awkward construction. As pointed out like is used to compare noun.

Avoid (rather, do not) selecting answer before you read all choices, many times it happens that you find a correct choice before reaching "E" in choices but "E" can turn out to be more "economical" (non-wordy) than the answer you have decided to select.

it comes down to A and E.
Like vs. As

in this case it should be as. So, I go with E aswell.
