There is no comparison at all. Correct answer is C as it use proper wording "such as" to list examples.

C fixed the only issue - using like to give examples by replacing it with "such as".

Quote:
A. species, like the mantella frog and the tomato frog, are endemic to the island
Here frog species such as the mantella frog and the tomato frog are given as examples. So the proper word for this use is "as". The word "Like" is used to compare two nouns not to give examples. Let's eliminate this option.

Quote:
B. species are endemic to the island, such as the mantella frog and the tomato frog
Here, the intended meaning is distorted. It defines both species as examples of Island not frog species. Misplacement is distorting the meaning.

Quote:
C. species, such as the mantella frog and the tomato frog, are endemic to the island
It seems fine because of the modifier placement and correct use of the word "such".

Quote:
D. species are endemic to the island, like the mantella frog and the tomato frog
It is totally wrong. Modifier placement and wrong use of "Like" makes it wrong.

Quote:
E. species, like the mantella and tomato frog, are endemic to the island
It is wrong because of wrong use of word "Like".

So the best option is C.

D. species are endemic to the island, like the mantella frog and the tomato frog
E. species, like the mantella and tomato frog, are endemic to the island

1. use of like to present examples is wrong. So, get rid of A, D, E.
2. MF and TF modify island, which is incorrect. Get rid of B

So, C is the correct choice.
