Hope your preparation is going well.
There is no visible error seen in the underlined portion.
Let us try to solve this question by eliminating incorrect choices.
Choice B- It changes the intended meaning of the sentence.
Choice C -like is incorrectly used. Like is used to compare nouns and not clauses.
Choice D-As is incorrectly used. The comparison is not proper.
Choice E- And and yet are incorrectly used together.
Since we are able to eliminate all the other choices, A will serve as the right answer.
Keep practicing.
All the best!!

(A) Correct
(B) Distorts meaning.
(C) Clause can follow Like.It has to be noun/noun phrase
(D) Comparison is not proper.
(E) Two co-ordinating conjunctions AND and YET can not sit together. Either of them should be used

Hence Answer is (A)


And and yet sit well together.
