'Like' is a preposition. That means 'like' can precede only a noun or a noun phrase.
Like Tom, Dick is also tall.

On the contrary, 'alike' can be preceded only by a verb.
Tom and Dick are alike in many respects

Therefore, 'alike' in A is wrong. Use of 'as' in a comparison of two noun elements is wrong in B, C, and E.
D is the answer.
