Unlike other arachnids, which have their nerve cells evenly

(A) bodies, the scorpion's nerve cells are clustered in its head,
like a mammal's

(B) bodies, the scorpion's head has a cluster of nerve cells, as
a mammal does

(C) body, the scorpion has a cluster of nerve cells in its head, as a
mammal does

(D) body, nerve cells are clustered in the scorpion's head, like
a mammal's

(E) body, a cluster of nerve cells is in the scorpion's head,
like a mammal's
________

I picked this question from the gmattutor forum. The person posting says that the official ans is C.

I feel "body" doesn't agree with the subject-verb agreement and "as" is preferred over "like" in formal text. So I think the correct answer is B.

Any other views ?

B has 2 errors. First, it implies that arachnids have more than one body. Second it erroneously compares "arachnids" to "scorpion's head" as underlined in red.
C is best and solves for those 2 problems found in B
