Correct idiom is "model (something) after (something else)"

(A) modeled the face of the statue like his mother’s and the body like his wife’s >> like is wrong
(B) modeled the face of the statue after that of his mother and the body after that of his wife >> Correct
(C) modeled the face of the statue like his mother and the body like his wife >> Like is wrong
(D) made the face of the statue after his mother and the body after his wife >> wrong reference
(E) made the face of the statue look like his mother and the body look like his wife >> like is wrong, also wrong reference

I think it should be B too.
Correct idiom, like premnath said, should be molded after.

I think the take away from this question is to understand the parallelism "face of the statue after that of his mother ...". "Face of" and "that of" should be parallel.

Can you please explain why 'E' is wrong? And let me know how to mugup the Idioms and what is the best source for the same. If you have some let me know.

Option B is correct since "like" is wrongly used and "that" acts as a pronoun.
