Actors => singers,dancers.
Eliminate D and E.
C wordy.
Only between A and B.
We are comparing actions actions , there is a hidden "do" in A.

A is correct for me.
perform as dancers do.

huntgmat,

what is the difference between 'as' and 'like', can't we use like here?

A and B are both good. The only thing I don't like in A is 'being', where as in B 'like' is confusing me.

I will opt for B.

1.A is like B.
2. A behaves as B does.

3. A behaves like B.

Easy way to distinguish,
Like is used to express similarity. It is normally used to show similarity
between two nouns e.g. Lemons are like limes.
As on the other hand would normally compare two clauses and not two nouns.
E.g. He looks as if he is drunk.

In the example 1, put AS => A is as B. Its wrong ? We should use LIKE.

In between example 2 and 3 ( simmilar to this question ), I would say if in answer choises
2 is not present I will be forsed to select 3. But if I have 2 in choises I NEVER shall select 3.

A behaves as B does.
We are comparing how A behaves with how B behaves. Isn't it ?
