E. Like everybody before you, you're going to die but thanks to modern medicine and health practices, you'll probably live much longer than your ancestors did.

A: As cannot compare nouns (as only compares clauses and actions).
B. "your ancestors" is not parallel to or a correct comparison with " you'll probably live". we need "did" for the ancestors.
C. As problems as A.
D. ancestors lived in the past. so "do" doesnt do it!! :D

E. Correct

you'll probably live much longer as your ancestors did
is incorrect

B is incorrect because it means you will live longer than your ancestors..how is that even possible..lol
