Expect means use of Subjunctive Mood
For subjunctive mood Past Participle must be used , hence " would " is the correct form.

A. would lead to a decreasing quality of life and an increase in depressive symptoms like sleeping less than six hours has. - Incorrect
B. will lead to a decreasing quality of life and increasing depressive symptoms as less than six hours of sleep have. - Incorrect
C. would lead to a decrease in quality of life and an increase in depressive symptoms as does sleeping less than six hours. - Correct
D. to lead to a decrease in quality of life and an increase of depressive symptoms like sleeping less than six hours does. - Incorrect
E. leading to a decrease in quality of life and an increase in depressive symptoms, unlike sleeping less than six hours. - Incorrect

Hence (C) is correct !!

Hi,
the Q tests us on two concepts..
1) as/like... as is used for action and like to compare noun..
here as is correct
2) will/would..
will is to talk of future and would for future in past tense..

only C fits in
