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

And and yet sit well together.

It is also expected that tax rises and spending cuts, both those already announced and yet to come, will weigh heavily on the economy. [The Sunday Times]
