+1 for A,
B,C incorrectly uses 'like'
In D use of 'that' looks incorrect.
Can you please share the explanation?

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



Choices B, C, D and E incorrectly use the singular ‘dancer’. Choices D and E also incorrectly uses the singular ‘a singer’ to refer to the plural ‘actors’. Choice A is the correct answer.

eGMAT states that being is correct on the GMAT only in the following 2 circumstances -

1. When Being is used as a noun.
2. When passive continuous verb tense is required to communicate the meaning.

Here in my opinion Being satisfies the 1st condition! Please correct me if I am wrong..
