IMO B

Modeled the face when used with 'like' should be compared to other modeled face not the face itself.
otherwise it should be modeled after the face
Hence, A and C is wrong

D) made after is incorrect in the sentence
E) it should be look like his mother's face and so on. Modeled face can't look like his mother but like his mother's face.

So B stands.

This doesn't look like a GMAT question. The OA looks wrong. Check out the meaning of the statement. Are we saying he modeled the face of the sculpture after modeling the mother's face and then modeled the body after modeling his wife's body?

This question tests comparisons and consistency:

(A) modeled the face of the statue like his mother's and the body like his wife's
The phrasing is okay, but there is a bit of an unknown. "modeled the face of the statue like his mother's ????" It's not explicit what he modeled after his mother.

(B) modeled the face of the statue after that of his mother and the body after that of his wife
This phrasing is a bit wordy but it makes sense. Notice the comparisons:
modeled the face of the statue after that of his mother

Here's a color coding:

the face of the statue
that of his mother

Notice the consistency in the phrasing. the face = that, of = of, the statue = his mother. The same applies "the body" and "that of his wife. It's wordy, but the comparison is correct.

(C) modeled the face of the statue like his mother and the body like his wife
This statement implies he "modeled the face of the statue" like he "modeled his mother". He did not "model his mother"

(D) made the face of the statue after his mother and the body after his wife
This phrasing implies the sculptor made the face of the statue after he made his mother. The sculptor did not "make" his mother.

(E) made the face of the statue look like his mother and the body look like his wife
Similar to C, this implies the "face" looks like his "mother" and the "body" looks like his "wife". The meaning is distorted because the face should look like his mother's face, not his mother.

Both can be used in this context, but options with like are ambiguous. They are not clear if face is modeled like face, and same with the body.

The option would be correct with like if it was something like

Modeled the statue's face like his mother's face, and body like his wife's body.

also modelled .... like .... is incorrect idiom. The correct idiom is modeled (something) after (something) is the correct idiom

IMO=D

The Statuted of Liberty is sculpted and made, not sculpted and modeled. Correct usage of after; and statue after his mother...body after his wife are parallel.

I am going to go with B.

This is because the correct idiom is "modeled after" not "modeled like". That leaves us with B and D. D has incorrect comparison. The face is like that of his mother's face and body after his wife's body.

That leaves us with B.
